23ES Commercial instructed on landmark Rugby Union/League player transfer case

Arnold Ayoo from 23ES Commercial has been instructed, along with Nick Randall QC from Martix Chambers, on a landmark contract dispute that affects both Rugby League and Union codes – and has potential ramifications for the transfer of players in UK sports generally.

The case involves the transfer of soon-to-be England international Denny Solomona from Castleford Tigers (RFL) to Sale Sharks (RFU). The first case management conference took place on 8 May 2017 and the matter has been listed for a 7 day trial at the High Court in late 2017.
