Can is a member of Chambers’ leading Sports Law Team and is developing his sports law practice. He was instructed (with Patrick Lawrence Q.C.) by the owner of NATIVE KHAN, a leading runner in the 2011 Epsom Derby, to seek an interim injunction against the 3-times derby-winning jockey, Kieren Fallon, to prevent Mr. Fallon from riding a rival horse, RECITAL, in the Derby. The injunction was refused by the High Court but then granted by the Court of Appeal, following a successful appeal, on the morning of the Derby. The decision of the Court of Appeal (Araci v Fallon,  EWCA Civ 668) remains the leading authority on prohibitory injunctions. Can was retained as sole counsel for the subsequent proceedings.
Can has written on the implications for sport of the coming into force of the Bribery Act 2010 on July 1, 2011 and continues to publish in the area.
