Daniel undertakes some of the most complex and high profile sports disciplinary cases before the UK and foreign sporting Tribunals. His expertise lies in representing both Governing Bodies and those accused of Disciplinary infringements.
As a sports lawyer, I have appeared on behalf of elite professional athletes in various sports: boxing, rugby, horse racing, football and volleyball. I have advised upon issues ranging from disciplinary breaches, regulatory breaches, intellectual property disputes between sponsors, image rights of retired professional athletes and much more.
Is your advice confidential? I don’t need to advertise using the names of celebrities, Clubs and organisations that I have worked for or against. It is both my personal and my Chamber’s approach to not market using such information so as to preserve the integrity and reputations of all those that I represent.
"In my experience of Daniel White, he has a sound knowledge of sport, disciplinary and criminal allegations. I would highly recommend his services both in the area of sports law and private criminal defence"
