The article reports that Walker Morris's sports team has won a crucial football case with major repercussions for the lucrative football transfer market. Partners Chris Caisley and David Hinchliffe led the team advising Bradford City Football Club in its appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne against a decision of Fifa's Players' Statute Committee. The case hinged on whether a loan to another football club counted as a transfer. In November 2001, Bradford bought defender Andrew Tod from Dunfermline Athletic Football Club for £100,000.
