Sports Law

We don’t see Sports Law as just another business. Sport is special.


Our Sports Law team brings together award-winning expertise in commercial, medical, insurance, property and regulatory areas across the full range of sports-related disputes. Whether the case concerns a disciplinary hearing, a contractual issue or a career-threatening injury, the team will be able to help. We act for sportspeople, their clubs and their governing bodies in every arena from internal arbitrations to the highest courts. We are a dedicated team and are confident in our service and our ability to deliver. Should you decide to send us your case, you can benefit from the option of an upfront charge-free initial review: our team will discuss your case to provide an initial advice, before you decide to make any commitment to us.
Why are we different?

Because we get it. The team are passionate about sport. Most have played sport to a high level, including at professional standard, and we understand what drives someone to commit to sport as a vocation. No less importantly, we understand the monetisation of sport and the practicalities underpinning its commercial exploitation.

Because we are adaptable. We offer innovative non-traditional solutions specifically developed for the sports market. As well as fixed-fee structures, we offer individual and group instruction. In this new approach the client obtains, if they so wish, the services of the whole team, with the case conducted by junior barristers and supervised by a QC if requested.

Because we are unique. We believe that few, if any, Chambers combine the quality and breadth of experience we can provide, combined with our modern approach to client service. We know sport doesn’t take holidays, so someone will be able to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
