Legal renaissance man Michael Beloff QC has added yet another string to his bow after being appointed ethics commissioner and chair of the ethics advisory group for London 2012 Ltd, the company running Britain’s Olympic bid.
Blackstone Chambers barrister Beloff has been appointed to help the company in a number of areas including ensuring that London 2012 meets its obligations under the Olympic rules and regulations.
Beloff, who will work alongside Blackstone Chambers joint head, Charles Flint QC, will also nominate three non-executive directors to join London 2012.
Beloff, also president of Trinity College, Oxford, has enjoyed a long involvement with the Olympic games: he is a member of the panel of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for this year’s event in Athens. In the past he has served on the CAS panel for both the Atlanta and Sydney Olympic games.
