Meet our Lawyers: Tiran Gunawardena

One of our sports lawyers, Tiran Gunawardena, did an interview with a Sri Lankan newspaper (Ceylon Today) about his unique experience as a Sri Lankan/Australian working in international sports law.

The interview arose as a result of Tiran providing his comments for an article on goal.com.

Tiran specialises in international sports arbitration and dispute resolution and regularly advises players’ associations, clubs, players and intermediaries on football regulatory matters. Tiran joined the Mills & Reeve sports law team in 2014 while completing a Masters in International Sports law at ISDE (Madrid). Tiran is qualified as both an Australian solicitor and Chartered Accountant and previously worked in the Corporate Tax / M&A team at PwC Sydney for almost 4 years.

Having lived in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Australia, Spain and now the UK, Tiran has developed a broad international network of contacts, particularly in sports law but also in the broader commercial/legal industry which is useful when clients require legal expertise in foreign jurisdictions.

If you require assistance with sports law issues, in particular in the UK, Asia or Australia, or would like to know more information, please contact Tiran.
