Sports Law


With a wealth of specialist experience in the fields of health & safety, personal injury, clinical negligence, professional negligence, employment, commercial contract and white collar crime, Chambers sports law barristers are ideally placed to act for individuals and organisations that are subject to regulatory or disciplinary proceedings, or to advise those who have queries regarding them.

The depth of knowledge and understanding that Farrar’s Building has to offer clients comes not only from its junior and senior members who have experience of appearing before disciplinary and regulatory tribunals, but also from those members who regularly advise and chair such panels themselves.

Over the years, members of Chambers have gained extensive experience of disputes and proceedings in relation to the following governing bodies:

  • Rugby Football Union
  • Welsh Rugby Union
  • British Boxing Board of Control
  • England and Wales Cricket Board
  • Football Association
  • British Horseracing Authority
  • Amateur Swimming Association

Individual members of the Farrar’s Building disciplinary and regulatory team have dealt with matters such as: the legality of promotion / relegation, anti-doping, on and off-field misconduct, competition, agent, player and club agreements, and international sport arbitration.

Members of Chambers are happy to accept work on a Public Access basis if required.
