Fulcrum Chambers logo

Our governance work includes assisting sports in achieving compliance with the best practice required by Sports England, the International Olympic Committee, and other relevant bodies, including national governing bodies (“NGBs”). We draw not only on the best aspects of governance structures developed across numerous sports, but also the best aspects of good governance seen across the corporate world.

Uniquely, our team consists of various experts with extensive, first-hand, competitive sports experience themselves at a national level. This, coupled with our exceptional legal credentials, means we genuinely understand that no two sports are the same. Having this experience means we speak our clients’ language, and appreciate the quirks and nuances that come with different sports and representative bodies. As such, we will tailor our advice to your specific requirements to ensure that it works for you, and that any sporting bodies or institutions we work with can be world class on and off the pitch.

Our lawyers are supported by multidisciplinary specialists, including investigators, forensic accountants and compliance professionals, enabling us to consider the whole picture and give you thoroughly comprehensive advice.
