On 21 February, Kingsley Napley hosted its first sports focused event, whereby Sunday Times Chief Sports Writer David Walsh gave the inside story about his 13 year journey to expose the Lance Armstrong doping scandal.
Edward Fennel, journalist for The Times and The Brief attended the event, and wrote the following on 1st March:
Lawyers and journalists packed into the Regent Street Cinema in London this week to hear from David Walsh, the Sunday Times journalist, and his tale of exposing Lance Armstrong’s drug cheating in the Tour de France. The roll call of firms and chambers was impressive — staff from Allen & Overy, Simmons & Simmons, Hogan Lovells, Taylor Wessing, White & Case and Kingsley Napley were present, as were barristers from Maitland, 2TG, Littleton, Monckton and Outer Temple. Significantly, UK-Anti Doping staff were there in force. Conspicuous by its absence, however, was Schillings, which played a key part in the London end of the story. The night raised questions about how far lawyers should go in defending the indefensible. For once, the journalists were the good guys."
