Our governance work includes assisting sports in achieving compliance with the best practice required by Sports England, the International Olympic Committee, and other relevant bodies. We draw not only on the best aspects of governance structures developed across numerous sports, but also the best aspects of good governance seen across the corporate world.

We understand, of course, that no two sports are the same, and we tailor our advice to your specific nuances and requirements. This ensures that our advice works for you, and that any sporting bodies or institutions we work with can be world class on and off the pitch.

Our lawyers and investigators are supported by multidisciplinary specialists, including forensic accountants and a number of our team have either ongoing or past experience of participation in competitive sport at a high level.
