I'm an associate in our Sports Group in London, where I advise on a whole variety of sports issues including anti-doping and other disciplinary matters, challenges to regulatory decisions, rules and regulations, constitutions and governance and contractual disputes.

Over the years I have acted for national and international governing bodies, event organisers, clubs, rights holders and individuals across the sporting world including (among others) tennis, motor sport, equestrian, rugby union, cricket, field hockey and ice hockey.

In the anti-doping field, I regularly represent international federations in anti-doping proceedings before first instance panels (such as Sport Resolutions in London) and on appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne. I also sat as a member of a three-person panel appointed ad hoc to hear a first instance anti-doping case brought by the International Handball Federation (IHF) against an international-level handball player.

I also advise and represent sport governing bodies on a range of other matters, including other (non-anti-doping) disciplinary matters (such as misconduct or other breaches of the applicable sporting, integrity or technical regulations during a competition), membership disputes, good governance, and integrity issues.

I regularly draft anti-doping programmes, sporting rules, integrity codes, procedural rules and other rules/policies for various sport governing bodies and event organisers.

Having lived, studied and worked in North America, Europe and Australia, I have significant international experience, and speak fluent English and French, with intermediate German and conversational Italian.
