Our team of lawyers has experience across all areas of the law affecting athletes or sporting bodies.
Can I be legally represented in front of a judiciary?
Most sporting judiciaries allow you to have an advocate speak on your behalf. If you find yourself facing extended time away from the sport you love, we can assist by:
- Preparing evidence
- Advocacy before a judiciary
- Preparing submissions
- Providing advice on the procedure.
Our lawyers have experience as members of judiciary panels and can provide insight in the process if you are unsure.
What can I do if I am involved in a dispute with my local club?
Sports clubs and incorporated associations will have dispute resolution measures within their constitutions or rules, ensuring that if you feel that you have been unfairly dealt with, you have an opportunity to be heard.
Being a member of a club is important to you, so our lawyers are able to help you put your best case forward if you find yourself in a situation where you’ve lost membership to a club without fair explanation or for poor reasoning. This may involve appearing on your behalf before the club board or drafting representations or submissions to the club where they have failed to abide by their constitution.
Where can I get advice as a board member of a sporting club?

- Drafting and advising on constitutions
- Providing advice on the conduct of board meetings
- Compliance advice
- Assisting across a range of commercial transactions or disputes
- Sponsorship or advertising agreements
- Employment issues
