Centrefield’s ranking for its work in Sport has risen in the recently published Chambers UK 2018 directory. In only its second year, Centrefield’s ranking has been elevated, placing it among the leading sports practices in the UK. This follows the firm’s recent promotion in the Legal 500 Rankings and reflects its success in establishing itself as one of the UK’s leading sports practices following its launch in December 2015. The firm was recognised by its clients for ‘their expertise in all areas of sports law and their approach’ and the partners were once again highlighted by clients for their work, with Matthew Bennett described as an ‘industry leader’ and Edward Canty being noted as ‘strong on the regulatory side… he has good experience dealing with governing bodies and understands that side of sport’. David Bentham was praised for his ‘extensive knowledge and expertise in sports law’, whilst Stuart Baird was also hailed as ‘brilliant with clients’, who also noted that he ‘knows the area inside-out.’
The praise and ranking underlines the specialist knowledge, experience and expertise Centrefield has within Sport and the firm’s ability to deliver industry specific advice, tailored to the need of its clients.
