Graeme McPherson QC and Rick Liddell add to their tally of Olympic instructions

Date: 07/08/2012

Last week, Graeme McPherson QC and Rick Liddell  were retained at very short notice by the International Association of Athletics Federation (“IAAF”) in connection with the provisional suspensions of two International -Level Athletes.  This high-profile instruction follows hot on the heels of a number of other Olympic matters in which 4 New Square’s barristers have been instructed (click here for article by The Lawyer).

Graeme McPherson QC has already successfully represented an international athlete in a challenge to a selection dispute by British Shooting and is an appointee to the London 2012 Advocates Panel, which offers experienced Sports law advocates to parties involved in Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS disputes during London 2012).  He appears in the legal directories as a leading silk in Sports law, Professional Negligence and Professional Discipline.

Rick Liddell represented an Olympic Gold Medallist in his selection appeal to British Rowing (click here for article)He also very recently successfully acted for the IAAF in its appeal to CAS in Switzerland of the decision of the Doping Committee of the Hungarian National Anti-doping Organisation, which had exonerated the Hungarian discus thrower Zoltan Kovago from any sanction (click here for article).  Rick appears in the legal directories as a leading junior in Sports law and Professional Negligence.
