Dan Chapman said: “At our LP Sports practice, our ethos is about leading people to be the very best they can be in their sport. We understand the pressures and urgency of the legal matters that the sporting client has to deal with and are invested in finding the best possible solutions in the quickest timeframe. I am often asked what makes a good sports lawyer – in my opinion a sports lawyer is usually a multi-disciplinarian (think of a decathlete) but has a solid history in one area of law (such as employment law in my case, though it could be commercial law or commercial litigation for example), works well under intense pressure and in high profile situations and who is as good in a court room / Tribunal as they are analysing documents and problem solving. At LP Sports we are confident we bring all of those qualities to the table, representing our client’s best interests fearlessly.”
