New investigatory service launched for sports industry

Global investigative and advisory firm Quest has partnered with The Sports Consultancy, a consulting, commercial and legal advisory company serving the sports industry, to launch a new investigatory service.

Global Sports Investigations (GSI) will offer sporting bodies scoping and consultation, investigations, monitoring, recommendations and implementation services.

Other areas covered by GSI, which claims to offer a unique offering for the sports sector, will include betting, integrity and athlete welfare, anti-doping, governance and transparency, safeguarding and commercial rights.

Robert Datnow, founder and managing director of The Sports Consultancy, said: “This is the time to launch GSI. In the climate of increased scrutiny into behaviour, integrity transparency and the governance of sport, the need for truly independent, expert, professional, end-to-end management of investigations and inquiries, where sport can be confident of the planning, outcomes and follow through has never been more needed by the entire sports community.”
