Today marks a very important milestone for SL as we say a very excited hello and welcome to James Pheasant, who joins as a Director and Head of Dispute Resolution.

He also has particular expertise in sports regulatory work and represents athletes and horse trainers in anti-doping cases. He is ranked in Chambers & Partners (Band 2) for his horse Racing & equestrian work (UK-wide).

James’s arrival means that we’re able to provide support to our clients in the following new areas:

– Commercial disputes, including contract disputes with suppliers, customers, shareholders and business partners
– Insolvency and restructuring
Debt recovery
– Professional negligence
– Anti-doping cases (both equine and human)
– Technology, IP and data disputes

In addition, we are very excited to be able to offer an enhanced package to our retainer clients by providing them with pre-litigious dispute resolution support.
