Corporate

Many enterprises both private and government have some form of disciplinary procedure in the event a member contravenes a protocol. We hold extensive experience in such representations which require personal appearances or just simple advice.

We represent but are not limited to tribunals in fields of government, medicine, policing, building and teaching. Our stable of elite barristers can also be engaged if required for written advices or more complex forms of representation.

Sporting

It has become more apparent in recent times that sportspeople are subject to intense scrutiny from the media for every on and off-field incident. This can be a very trying time for the athlete whether they are professional or amateur. The ultimate result of a hearing can affectthe rise or fall of the athletes’ career.

This highlights the importance of professional representation for any required appearance. Our staff has represented players in most codes including rugby union, rugby league, AFL, cycling and athletics successfully. If required we also have the selection of elite counsel if the situation requires.

We also have experience in representing players who have been disciplined by the governing body of a sport, only to then face criminal charges afterwards for the same incident. We are able to tirelessly defend the player whilst also managing the media interest which inevitably accompanies such a charge.
