Farani Taylor Solicitors have previously represented Salman Butt – the ex-captain of Pakistan’s International Cricket Team.
In February 2011, the International Cricketing Council banned Salman from the sport for 10 years (suspended for 5) for offences contravening their Anti-Corruption Code.
Farani Taylor Solicitors represented Salman in his appeal against the ICC’s ban, and travelled to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland for his hearing.
Salman’s appeal was heard before a panel of senior Judges who were all specialists in Sports Law. Despite powerful legal arguments and an emotional speech by Salman, the panel declined to reduce his ban.
Despite the outcome, Salman was both satisfied and impressed with the services offered by the firm.
In a statement, Salman said, “Farani Taylor Solicitors provided an expert service and I always felt that I was in excellent, capable hands. My lawyers were incredibly supportive, and even though I did not get the desired result, I knew that my legal team were with me one hundred per cent of the way”.
