Sports, Entertainment & Media

Chambers has strength in depth and a substantial presence in the field of sport, entertainment and media.

In the sports arena members of chambers frequently advise on and act in disputes before domestic or international tribunals, including the Court of Arbitration for Sport, or before the High Court in a full range of sports disputes covering a large spectrum of sports including (purely as examples) football, rugby union, cricket, horse racing, swimming, athletics, motor racing, sailing, diving and rugby league.

Our clients include individual sportsmen and sportswomen, domestic and international governing bodies, stakeholders and commercial partners.

We also frequently advise on non-contentious matters in a sporting context, such as the drafting of rules and regulations and their implementation and adoption.

Particular specialisms within Chambers include on all issues relating to selection and Paralympic classification.

A number of members also sit as arbitrators for various domestic and international tribunals, including for Sport Resolutions.

In the field of entertainment and media members of chambers advise on and represent a wide variety of clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters. We appear in a number of courts, including the High Court, on matters as diverse as copyright, performer’s rights and contractual disputes.
