George’s sports practice focuses on the following areas (i) disciplinary and regulatory work; (ii) governance and selection related issues and (iii) commercial work – whether general contractual advice or, more broadly, litigation or potential disputes between players/agents/clubs/professional bodies.
He is listed in the Legal 500 in the context of professional disciplinary work as a leading junior. Comments in the directories note his “real intellect”, being "an absolute pleasure to work with", an “up-and-coming star" who picks up the "key legal issues very quickly" and a junior who "really stands out for his commercial approach." He has experience of a wide range of disciplinary bodies and Tribunals – including (in the sporting context) the BHA and tribunals convened pursuant to the Sports Resolutions Dispute Service.
By way of example of recent work, he has recently represented a British bobsleigh athlete in an appeal arising out of non-selection for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
George is also rated in the directories (Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners) for commercial litigation and international arbitration - areas of work which ties in well with commercial and international disputes in the sporting context.
