Sports Law

Chambers is in the unique position of being home to a small number of nationally recognised Sports Law barristers who operate outside London. Our barristers are involved in every type of sports related case; from agency disputes to acting as advisors to sporting governing bodies.

Barristers undertaking this work have a sound appreciation of the wider factors that need to be brought into account when representing high-profile celebrity sporting clients. We have advised and represented premier league and international football players, a former England cricket captain, rugby league international players, as well as darts and cycling professionals.

Members of the team sit on the Footballing Association Appeal Board and advise sports governing bodies on a wide range of issues.
