Legal Advice &Representation

In recent years, the increasing regulation of sport has meant there is a need for competitors, athletes, clubs, managers, coaches, medical professionals and sports organisations to be fully aware of their legal rights and responsibilities.

Allegations of misconduct, including doping, financial mismanagement and corruption need to be swiftly handled with decisive and practical action.

How Can We Help

At Else Solicitors we can offer advice, support and legal representation relating to all regulatory, disciplinary and human rights aspects of sports law. We can represent sports people in disciplinary matters that bring them into conflict with sports’ governing bodies.

It is essential for sports organisations and governing bodies to have robust internal regulations and rules. The team here, at Else Solicitors, can advise on all areas of governance and financial regulations, and has wide experience in drafting constitutional documents, commercial rules and sporting regulations for governing bodies in the UK and abroad.

We can also advise specific sports on their relationships with the betting industry.
