Gemma White

Barrister, 3PB Barristers

Gemma is passionate about sport and has begun to develop her practice in this niche area. She is currently completing an LLM in Sports Law and Practice at De Montfort University and is a member of the British Association of Sport and the Law.

She has particular experience in disciplinary matters and has advised governing bodies; she advises a local FA on diverse Equality Act matters, including ethics, safeguarding and transgender policy. She has experience of anti-doping and has appeared before the UK national anti doping Tribunal; she acted on behalf of an athlete in the first anti-doping case under the revised 2015 Code.

Gemma was recently instructed to represent two clients in disciplinary proceedings before a national Football Association panel. Both of Gemma’s clients - a football club and one of it’s individual players - were found not guilty of the charges brought against them by the FA; failure to control players and discriminatory improper conduct respectively.

Gemma is keen to continue to develop her practice in all areas of sports law and accepts instructions across the board in regulatory and commercial cases.
