7 Bedford Row Chambers

Based on its acknowledged wide-ranging civil and anti-corruption law expertise 7 Bedford Row is uniquely positioned to cover all the major aspects of sports law. 7 Bedford Row has a multi-disciplinary sports team with a growing reputation in the major areas of litigation that relate to modern sport. This encompasses expertise in disciplinary, commercial and employment disputes relating to professional and amateur sports-men and women, as well as niche specialisms in areas such as motorsport.

In addition, 7BR is one of a small group of chambers to undertake advice and representation in a wider range of sports law that means it now provides a comprehensive sports law service. Such expertise includes, personal injury/professional negligence in sport, health and safety law in particular relating to sports arenas and spectators, through to child protection in sport and national and international anti-corruption law that threatens the integrity of sport.
