Ian Meakin secures successful lifting of lifetime Olympic ban on Mr Vitaly Mutko

In a judgment this month the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, unequivocally lifted the lifetime ban from the Olympics by the International Olympic Committee (“IOC”) on Mr. Vitaly Mutko, former Minister for Sport, Tourism and Youth of the Russian Federation, finding that the IOC’s ban had no legal basis. Ian Meakin, instructed by Fabrice Robert-Tissot of Bonnard Lawson, acted for the successful Mr. Mutko.
