Jeremy has developed a niche practice in sports law, resulting from his PI work. His caseload has included career-ending injury to sports professionals, “professional foul” cases, negligent referee cases, and negligent coaching cases. Whilst much of this work would in the past have been categorized as personal injury or professional negligence work, Jeremy recognizes that participation in sport has become more widespread, more specialized, more technical and more ‘professional’ in approach. His own participation in the ‘adrenaline’ sports of windsurfing and kitsesurfing (and formerly American Football) gives Jeremy a particular understanding of the sports person.
