Overview

Over the last decade sports law has developed rapidly into a discrete area of practice.

9 Gough Chambers provides expertise in disciplinary, commercial and employment disputes arising in a sports law context. In addition, members of chambers offer a wealth of experience in personal injury claims arising out of participation and contractual disputes with and on behalf of niche liability insurers in the professional game. The disputes which often arise are those in relation to indemnity for career-ending injury. These types of disputes often involve some form of ADR in which 9 Gough Chambers offers an extensive service which includes facilities for multi-party resolution.

Members of chambers regularly bring and defend these types of claims and have extensive experience of representing parties from international rugby players to the governing bodies such as UK Athletics and the British Cycling Federation both of whom they are regularly instructed on behalf of. Members of chambers are also instructed in litigation arising from London 2012.

In addition to injuries sustained whilst participating in sport, members of chambers are also instructed in proceedings arising from doping offences.

9 Gough Chambers has the strength and depth to be able to offer legal advice on civil, commercial and the criminal aspects of sports litigation. This gives chambers the edge over other purely civil practitioners.

We have a professional and friendly approach which is widely praised by solicitors and clients alike.

Our barristers are happy to provide training to solicitors on recent developments as well as specifically requested topics.

9 Gough Chambers is accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
