Legal Panel Framework

Legal Panel Framework


We have particular expertise in sports law and are one of the ten firms on the Legal Panel Framework, an initiative by Sport England, UK Sport, the Sport and Recreation Alliance, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland, aimed at making it easier for national governing bodies and wider sport and recreation organisations to identify and gain access to high quality legal advice at preferential rates.

Our expertise is spread across different sports and issues. Historically our strength lies in advising sports organisations, and national governing bodies in particular, on a wide range of issues including governance, discipline, selection challenges, safeguarding and employment related matters.

Should you instruct us we will at the outset undertake a review of all your existing, relevant documentation, including your constitution, HR policies and procedures and employment contracts, in order to highlight any areas that require particular attention. This review will be carried out free of charge.

We have always offered discounted fees to our sports related clients and these significant discounts are available to all those participating in the Framework together with other fee packages we are able to offer.

Please contact us for information about the Framework and how this could benefit your organisation.
