Louisa Simpson successfully defends athlete accused of bringing their sport into disrepute and breaching code of conduct

News 3rd April 2024

Louisa Simpson represented an athlete in respect of their appeal to the British Equestrian Federation, of a disciplinary decision and sanction made by one of its member bodies (UK Polocrosse Association). Louisa facilitated an early resolution for the athlete which included UKPA agreeing to all remedial aspects requested by the athlete, including overturning the sanction, issuing an apology and submitting themselves for an independent governance review of their policies and procedures.

She received the following testimonial: “Her support and understanding of the detail of the case was outstanding in every way. She delivered timely documents and advice throughout and gave us a level of confidence and reassurance we were doing the right thing in taking action. With…Ms Simpson…standing alongside us we felt empowered and confident throughout this stressful time in our lives.”

Louisa is Deputy Head of Pump Court Chambers’ Sports Law Team and advises and represents individuals and organisations in respect of disciplinary and regulatory tribunals and appeals, employment matters including discrimination and whistleblowing allegations, and in respect of personal injury and commercial and contractual disputes.
