Members of Blackstone Chambers have exceptional expertise and experience across all areas of sports law, ranging from state control of the sector, through sports body governance and regulation, and employment and other horizontal relationships between participants, to all aspects of the commercial exploitation of sport. The reason for the breadth of such areas covered by Chambers, and why it has been able to develop its reputation as the leading set for sports law, lies in its existing strengths in a unique combination of complementary fields of practice in which sports law finds its origins, in particular, EU and competition, human rights, employment and commercial law. As a result, members of Blackstone Chambers attract a wide range of clients, from international and national sports governance bodies, through sporting individuals, teams, clubs and agents, to broadcasters and other commercial partners, and regularly appear before all courts and tribunals, nationally and internationally, dealing with sports cases.
Endorsement for the practice is given in the current independent legal directories:
Chambers UK 2015 – “Blackstone Chambers is acknowledged as the leading sports set at the Bar.” “The set stands apart from its peers for sports work: no other set can match either the breadth of its expertise or the sheer number of its sports experts.”
Legal 500 2014 – “The best set for sports work by quite some distance.”
