Opus Law Represent Premier League Star Before FA Disciplinary Committee

Ben Jones was instructed by both Burnley Football Club and their player Andre Gray in relation to a number of charges of disrepute brought by the FA Governance and Regulatory Division. The charges brought were under FA Rule E3 and related to social media posts from his twitter account some 4 years before the charges were laid. 

A complaint had been made to the FA relating to aged tweets by the footballer which were said to be abusive, insulting and improper. It was claimed the charges had an aggravated factor due to alleged racist and sexist comments in the social media posts.

Mr Jim Sturman QC was instructed and a vigorous defence and mitigation constructed. We attended before the FA  Regulatory Commission at Wembley Stadium and verbally argued for a lenient sentence on behalf of our client.
