TORONTO / London, Ont. – AthletesCAN, the association of Canada’s national team athletes, and the Faculty of Law at Western University, are proud to celebrate a pair of achievements by Sport Solution Supervising Lawyer Amanda Fowler.
Fowler, who oversees the unique program that assists national level athletes in cases that require legal support, was recently named one of Canada’s leading sports and entertainment lawyers by Who’s Who Legal for the second consecutive year. In addition, Fowler took home the Lexology Client Choice Award in Sports & Entertainment Law, which is recognized within both the United States and Canada and internationally.
Both awards required recognition from Fowler’s athlete clients – in the form of votes, and a formal nomination submitted to Lexology/Client Choice.
Throughout her career, Fowler has represented Olympic, high-performance and amateur athletes in various sport disputes, including team non-selections, improper carding nominations, human rights and doping infractions. Her clients have included Canadian and international athletes, with cases heard at the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) and the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Fowler has helmed the Sport Solution program since 2020.
The Sport Solution program was founded in 1996, when AthletesCAN joined forces with the Sports Law Centre, the Faculty of Law at Western, and the Dispute Resolution Centre. The program is the only one of its kind in North America, and is available free for all members, providing relevant information, assistance and guidance on sport issues that may require legal counsel.
