A keen sportsman himself, Joel’s sports specialism cuts across all of his areas of his practice. Joel formerly sat as an Adjudicator on the FA’s CFA Disciplinary Panel and is instructed in both employment and commercial issues in the sector. Notably, Joel acted for a prominent academy footballer in that player’s efforts to leave their club, involving complex considerations concerning the interpretation of contracts and industry norms. He has also acted on various commercial claims for prominent football clubs, as well as novel disputes arising from the administration of a small-sided football league.
