Arbitration and sport share a common tradition – both are competitive activities in which one strives for success. The fast-paced industry that has developed around professional sport and the rising popularity of major sporting events have led to an increase in the number of sport-related disputes. Sports Arbitration includes disputes of both a commercial and disciplinary nature, such as the licensing of athletes, penalties, transfers of athletes and anti-doping cases, as well as contractual issues like advertising and sponsorship, and franchising, television and image rights.

Sports arbitration has gained a reputation for being swift and efficient, catering to the practical requirements of the industry. Our lawyers offer know-how and experience in this sector to athletes, sporting organisations and companies involved in sport.
