Who we help

Katie advises a wide range of sports clients on employment-related matters. She has extensive experience of contentious and non-contentious matters. Katie has advised on a number of high-profile appointments and dismissals and on the introduction of “home grown player” rules, in addition to large-scale restructures of sports organisations, discrimination cases, organisation-wide contract reviews, collective redundancies and TUPE transfers.

She regularly conducts seminars and lectures for sports organisations on employment and child protection issues and runs seminars in-house for HR directors of sports bodies. Over the past year, these have focussed mainly on equality issues and the safeguarding vulnerable groups legislation.
