“Match fixing and the Anti-Corruption Code in Tennis”

Given by:

Jamie Singer is a commercial lawyer at Onside Law, a law firm that specialises in the sport, fashion and entertainment industries. In this seminar Jamie will present an analysis of the different types of corruption which can affect sport and lead to contrived results assessing how these might be effectively combated. The analysis will be illustrated through a case study examining the recently introduced anti corruption programme for tennis.
