Position

Lawrence is an experienced barrister who specialises in defending high profile and complex cases, especially those of homicide, fraud and significant drugs offences. Able to accept work via Public Access and actively seeking to develop this part of his practice in the specific areas of ADR, Regulatory and Sports Law. ADR: Lawrence has advised and appeared in ADR and successfully completed an internship at the Singapore International Arbitration Centre. Regulatory: Lawrence has advised doctors and pharmacists, in relation to disciplinary matters, and private hire drivers and operators, in relation to licensing matters. Sports Law: An ever-present member of the Millfield School XI that won the English Schools Football Association Championship in 1987-88. The pitfalls of a career in professional football were eschewed for University, where the transition to Rugby was made. This culminated in a season in Italy with appearances for Rugby Livorno. On his return to the UK he started training in Karate under the auspices of Yamazaki Sensei and the Japan Karate-Do Ryobu-Kai. Sport and Law have now combined and Lawrence is appropriately placed to be able to advise and represent, either individuals or bodies, in relation to regulatory or disciplinary matters, that may concern them. Registered Lawyer under the FA Football Agents Regulations and Exempt Individual under the RFU Agents Regulations.
