Dispute Resolution in Sport

Disputes are an inevitable feature of the sports business. We can guide our clients through the entire process of commencing, maintaining or defending a claim, whether that be through the courts or via arbitration in the UK or internationally.

Our dispute resolution team take a pragmatic but fearless approach to litigation and can guide our clients through the entire process on a cost-effective basis. We have particular experience in contract disputes and regulatory cases. We appreciate that funding can be an issue and we are able to consider offering our clients no win no fee agreements were appropriate. 

Courts and sports bodies are keen to encourage the early settlement of cases with the help of professional mediators or other facilitators. Where appropriate, we advocate both mediation and early determination as a quick and relatively inexpensive route to settling disputes.
