Sports Law

Jo is a member of the Sport Resolutions pro bono panel. She was recently instructed on a pro bono basis by a professional athlete subject to an adverse analytical finding. She represented the player’s interests to UK Anti-Doping through written submissions and correspondence, leading to a 50% reduction in the period of ineligibility imposed (from 4 to 2 years) and a finding of a doping violation which was “not intentional”.

She is also currently acting in a sports and personal injury case, representing an injured golfer.

Jo was trained by the Bar’s leading sports law junior, during which time she assisted in a number of sports matters, including an IP case for Sky Sports and the England and Wales Cricket Board, an employment dispute regarding a football manager, a football shirt sponsorship dispute and a public law claim in relation to the policing of football grounds. She attended a number of disciplinary anti-doping hearings and has experience of FA Rule K arbitrations and other player/agent regulatory and contractual issues.

Jo is particularly interested in disciplinary matters, sports injuries, and issues surrounding the duty of care towards players and athletes.
