About the Organisation

Advocates for Animals is the first and only law firm of its kind, dedicated solely to animal protection law. It is increasing access to justice for animals, and those people and organisations dedicated to protecting them, by holding to account those who break the law and those charged with enforcing it. The UK is a nation of animal lovers, and as such we have some of the most powerful animal welfare laws in the world. However, legal protections are only meaningful if they are (1) understood, and (2) enforced. Unfortunately, a number of reports suggest that there is still a significant amount of work to be done in both respects. The public expects animal law to be fit for purpose and enforced by those public bodies charged with doing so, however this is often not the case. Having launched in March 2019, Advocates for Animals is developing an unparalleled depth of knowledge of the law as it relates to animals, and is able to advise its clients (largely animal protection organisations) on creative and innovative use of the law to ensure that the protections available are properly understood and enforced. In a short amount of time, we have already been instructed by the majority of established animal charities in the country, we have advised on a series of landmark cases, and established ourselves as the go-to law firm for legal advice in relation to animal protection.
