Integrity in Sport
At Northridge we understand that the essence of sporting competition is that it is played with integrity. This fundamental principle has come under attack from doping and match-fixing scandals, while allegations of bribery and corruption have impeached many individuals and organisations responsible for upholding sport’s central values.
We advise our clients to define standards of integrity within a sport’s rules and regulations, to detect breaches of integrity by adopting and updating compliance and investigation processes and to deter breaches of integrity by prosecuting those who break the rules – and defending those who are wrongly accused.
