Alex is currently instructed on the independent investigation into unlawful discrimination at Yorkshire County Cricket Club, led by Mohinderpal Sethi QC. The investigation follows widespread media coverage of the club’s mishandling of its own investigation into allegations of discrimination and harassment brought by former player Azeem Rafiq (see here and here) .

Alex’s sports law experience also includes:

  • Drafting the statement of case for an arbitration under the Procedural Rules of the National Safeguarding Panel.
  • A High Court breach of contract claim brought by a football agent against a premier league player.
  • An appeal to the EAT in proceedings against the UK governing body of an Olympic sport.
