Drugs in sport is a problem that may never go away. Unless it is handled correctly, doping controls and the disciplinary and regulatory proceedings that they create can mean the end of a sporting career, even the collapse of confidence in the integrity of a sport or competition itself.

The landscape of anti-doping controls changes frequently, and both athletes and governing bodies are coming under increasing pressure to comply with the regimes that evolve.

We advise those who have to enforce these controls and those affected by them on regulation, compliance and contractual issues, and where necessary in the tribunal and court proceedings that can result.

We have acted for governing bodies of sport and a broad range of athletes, sports participants, clubs and organisations on anti-doping issues.
