Within: Sport

Littleton Chambers has a particular strength at the interface of sports and employment law. David Reade QC and Lydia Banerjee represented former Great Britain cyclist Jess Varnish in an employment tribunal case over alleged sex discrimination, with many issues turning around the status of funded athletes as employees; an appeal is planned. Turning to governance issues, John Mehrzad chaired an independent review into the governance of the British Equestrian Federation, the umbrella body for most equine sports other than horse racing.
