Jonathan Taylor QC
Jon advise the widest range of sports bodies, from international and national governing bodies to leagues, clubs, and their commercial partners on matters including broadcasting and sponsorship rights, challenges to regulatory decisions, commercial disputes, and regulatory and disciplinary issues including match-sanctioning, match-fixing and doping.
Alongside his practice, he is the co-editor (with Adam Lewis QC) of the leading UK sports law text, Sport: Law and Practice (3rd Edition 2014). He was also a tutor at University College, Oxford (Tort Law and Administrative Law) in 1992/93 and Director of Studies in Sports Law at King's College, London from 2000 to 2007.
He holds both UK and US law degrees and originally qualified and practised as a commercial lawyer in New York before moving back to the UK in 1997. Since that time I've focused exclusively on advising sports clients.
