    Sports Integrity Services

A sport that places integrity at the heart of its culture provides a safe environment for those competing, truly champions fair play and sportsmanship, and can be recognised as honest and trustworthy.

We are dedicated to helping clubs, leagues, players, and regulators maintain and achieve this.  

In 2018 we launched our Integrity Services Unit, the first of its kind for a law firm. Since then, we have supported many clubs, leagues, players and regulators through integrity reviews and crises responses. The ISU is made up of industry experts that span our international offices, with valuable in-house experience at major national and international sporting organisations. 


Rapid Response Unit

Our Rapid Response Unit offers a unique confidential hotline to connect with our team at any time, regardless of time zone. Our international rapid response team will ensure that any critical issues you are facing are dealt with both immediately and privately. The Rapid Response Unit is supported by a team of experts across multiple legal disciplines with critical experience advising sports clients on issues that frequently arise in the sector.

Integrity Risk Review

When it comes to integrity, it is far better to take a proactive approach to avoiding a crisis. We have the breadth of knowledge and expertise to analyse different areas of a business or operation to ascertain where the key areas of threat and risk are present, which, once identified, we help you to eradicate or to avoid adverse exposure to. We can conduct both a full-service review for all areas of your business; or can provide you with a service that focuses on targeted areas of your concern.

To discuss any issues you are facing, or to talk to our team about anything else you require assistance with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
