Goodman Derrick appoints dispute resolution partner
Goodman Derrick has announced the arrival of Stephen Hornsby as a partner in its dispute resolution department.
Hornsby is a very experienced competition lawyer (both contentious and non-contentious), with particular experience in the media entertainment and sports sectors.
He recently led a major judicial review against Ofcom for a commercial broadcaster, which was settled on a satisfactory basis and also in the High Court, successfully quashed a lifetime ban on the physiotherapist involved in the famous ‘Bloodgate’ case.
