At 2TG, our Sports Law team comprises specialist advocates who have extensive experience of acting for clients in high profile or sensitive matters across all major sports.
This includes in relation to football, rugby (union and league), motorsports (F1, MotoGP, motocross, Formula 3 and karting), cycling, equestrianism, cricket, skiing, gymnastics, martial arts, netball and tennis.
Drawing on chambers’ established expertise in the complementary fields of commercial law, insurance, employment, property damage and personal injury, we provide a complete service to clients in complex sporting disputes.
Such disputes often give rise to arguments as to the interpretation and application of the rules and regulations of major sports governing bodies (e.g. FA, Premier League, IRB, RFU, FIA, MSA, ACU, ECB, LTA and UCI) as well as contractual and disciplinary disputes relating to a wide range of sports specific matters.
Our clients include clubs, teams, match officials, governing bodies, event organisers, schools and many individual competitors.
We are part of the Sport Resolutions UK Pro Bono Legal Service which is made up of lawyers willing to provide pro-bono legal advice and representation to athletes, coaches, team officials, and other individuals appearing before Sport Resolutions and other sport specific tribunals. Our members regularly speak and publish articles on Sports Law topics and work closely with LawInSport, an educational media business which provides expert commentary and analysis on the latest legal issues and developments in sport.
There are a number of Direct Access qualified barristers in the team who will accept instructions in appropriate cases without requiring solicitor involvement.
Several of our barristers are individually ranked in the most recent editions of Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners in recognition of their industry knowledge.
