Area of Focus


Good governance is vital to the reputations and, in some cases, the funding mechanisms of the organisations we support.

At Northridge we have extensive experience of advising major sports bodies on constitutional reform and industry compliance, often under high levels of media scrutiny. We also advise private clubs and businesses on the way competitions, boards and councils should be structured and how to improve their performance through better governance.

Clients also turn to us when stakeholder relationships break down. Our expertise enables us to develop a strategy for board and shareholder disputes.

“The knowledge of sports governance and of The FA’s governance structure within the Northridge team was critical in their ability to guide The FA through the necessary reforms. They were able to hit the ground running on this critical project based on this expertise.”
