What can Tiran do for you?

Tiran is a specialist in the sports team. His work includes advising players, clubs, unions and federations on sports regulatory and commercial matters. Tiran also has significant expertise in sports arbitration and proceedings before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Tiran was selected by Who’s Who Legal as a leading sports lawyer in the UK in 2018.

Supporting your ambitions

One of Tiran’s significant highlights was being appointed as an ad-hoc clerk by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in the high profile case Anna Chicherova v International Olympic Committee (IOC). The case was a disciplinary matter involving a Russian high jumper who was retrospectively stripped of her bronze medal from the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games by the IOC after testing positive for Turinabol. After a two day hearing in Switzerland, Tiran assisted the panel (an Australian Judge, and English and Austrian arbitrators) in drafting a detailed arbitral award dismissing the appeal.

What do others say?

Tiran was recognised as one of the leading sports lawyers in the world in Who's Who Legal: Sports and Entertainment 2018.  Tiran was recognised as "an expert in international sports arbitration", and was highly recommended as an "extremely well-qualified and competent sports lawyer" by clients.

What else should you know?

Tiran is dual qualified as an Australian Solicitor and Chartered Accountant, and holds a Masters in International Sports Law from ISDE (Madrid). Prior to moving to the UK, Tiran lived in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Australia and Spain, so is a truly international sports lawyer.
