Beloff QC takes up ethics post for London 2012

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, the company running the UK’s Olympic bid. Blackstone Chambers barrister Beloff, who will work alongside Blackstone joint head Charles Flint QC, will also nominate three non-executive directors. Beloff 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 and in the past has served on the CAS panel for both the Atlanta and Sydney Olympic Games.
