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.
