Stokes/Hales

We advised the ECB on all legal issues arising from the widely-publicised late night street brawl in Bristol in September 2017, in which England international cricketers Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were both involved and which resulted in Stokes being charged and acquitted of affray in Bristol Crown Court in August 2018.  Our role most recently included acting for the ECB in the disciplinary proceedings it brought against both players, which resulted in back-dated bans and substantial fines being imposed in December 2018 on both players for bringing the game into disrepute.

Brothers in Football

The story of Corinthian-Casuals FC is both inspirational and tragic. It’s beautifully told in the film Brothers in Football that premiered on BT Sport 1.

Here is the teaser video - it’s also on catch up.  A privilege and a joy to help the producers Chris Watney and Jay Barrymore make it happen.
