ICC appoints in-house lawyer

The International Cricket Council announced on Wednesday that it has appointed its first in-house lawyer.

Urvasi Naidoo, currently working as part of the Salt Lake Organising Committee for Olympic Winter Games of 2002, will join the ICC in April next year.

Urvasi is a specialist in sports law and has worked as a solicitor in practices in the United Kingdom since the early 1990s. Her current post as a Brand Protection lawyer in Utah includes legal protection of the Olympic brand and responsibility for sponsors' commercial exclusivity. She will leave this post after the 2002 Winter Olympics and relocate to work from the ICC's offices at Lord's cricket ground.

"There is a sizeable and growing amount of complex legal work connected to the business of cricket and it is important that the world governing body has its own specialist resource to handle it in a professional and decisive way," commented Chief Executive Officer Malcolm Speed.

"Urvasi will bring that level of expertise and directly relevant experience of sports law to the ICC," he added.

Urvasi is a member of the British Association for Sport and the Law and a member of The Law Society of England and Wales. Educated in the UK she holds both British and South African nationality.
