Members at 2 Hare Court are instructed by a range of sports regulatory bodies and the individuals brought before them, to advise and act for them in the most high profile disciplinary proceedings. Cases have involved on- and off-field violence and disorder, doping, financial irregularity, match / race fixing and other forms of alleged corrupt activity. These include the Football Association, The British Horseracing Authority, The Rugby Football Union and International Association of Athletics Federation.
The expansion of commercial opportunity has given rise to an ever increasing focus on the regulation of athletes, agents and clubs, anti-doping, and transparency in the practices of governing bodies.
We also advise and represent individuals and clubs in related criminal proceedings, and medical / healthcare practitioners involved in the sports industry that are charged by their own medical regulators.
