Wed, 28 Dec 2016

The Public Law Group led by Nageena Khalique QC heads a specialist responsive team at No5 including Emma SuttonPhilip Rule, and Ian Brownhill. We provide a package of tailored training, support, representation in legal proceedings, and advice to a number of clients including Teams and Clubs, affected players and coaches, Regulators and Governing Bodies. Our expertise covers a wide range of issues related to safeguarding in sports including how to deal with historical sex abuse.

Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is the important responsibility of each and every organisation, from small recreational clubs to Government regulators, and is an issue for all sports. This responsibility extends far beyond protecting future participants in sport, it involves learning from what may have gone wrong in the past. 

Safeguarding of vulnerable adults and children is not only a moral responsibility for sporting organisations it is a legal duty.

Our No5 team of experts is able to help draft polices for safeguarding, assist in independent reviews and inquires, represent individuals in all kinds of related legal proceedings, and advise on risk management.

Nageena Khalique QC also specialises in Court of Protection and Inquests and Public Inquiries.
