Sports Law

With his strong background in clinical negligence and personal injury, Sydney is well placed to advise and represent litigants in civil claims arising out of sports injuries.

He accepts instructions (including by Public Access) for representation before disciplinary bodies and hearings conducted by arbitration in all sports.

In this regard, Sydney has a Diploma in International Arbitration and has undergone extensive training in this form of ADR.

Sydney was appointed to the pro bono panel of Sport Resolutions in February 2019. Sport Resolutions is an independent, not-for-profit, dispute resolution service for sport based in the United Kingdom. It was established by the main stakeholder groups in sport. Their aim is to provide an expert, speedy and cost effective alternative to internal appeals processes and court-based litigation. They provide sport specific arbitration and mediation services and operate the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) and National Safeguarding Panel (NSP). Recently, Sydney has secured a result for athletes in three Sports Law cases, which you can read about here.

A keen follower of Judo and Sumo wrestling, he was selected for the Zambian Badminton team trials for the Commonwealth Games (in his youth).
