Specialist sports and personal injury lawyer Greg Rollingson has become the latest member of Golf Business International – the group of independent consultants for the golf sector.
Rollingson is a consultant solicitor with the UK-wide law firm of Taylor Rose TTKW – a top 200 law firm with 500 staff operating from 11 offices – and, since qualifying in 1980, has acted for many golf clubs, insurance companies, trade unions and individuals regarding sports and other injuries, safety issues and the legal liability of golfers and golf clubs.
Rollingson has taken a number of golf related and other personal injury cases to trial and has penned articles for various trade publications on golf injuries and other sporting topics. He has also addressed seminars on golfing safety issues and the legal liability of golf clubs.
A keen golfer himself, Rollingson explained: “Taylor Rose is one of the few firms of UK solicitors with sufficient in-depth knowledge and expertise to properly handle golf injury cases and also provide advice to both golf clubs and their insurers on liability and safety issues.
“My work previously has brought me into contact with other Golf Business International members. It was clear the organisation has a lot to offer both individual companies within the golf sector and the golf industry itself.
“I’m pleased to be able to join and look forward to adding my experience to the broad set of skills already available within the group.”
Welcoming Rollingson to Golf Business International, its new chairman, John Ashworth, added: “Greg has an enormous amount of experience in this sphere and his advice to golf clubs could be priceless in terms of avoiding future legal action.
“We are delighted he has chosen to add his skill to our burgeoning organisation and we believe his services should be much in demand.”
Formed originally as the Golf Consultants Association in 1999, Golf Business International, which rebranded in 2017 and is now a ‘preferred partner’ of England Golf, is unique in its ability to make available a team of highly respected and experienced golf industry professionals to deal with any aspect of the business of golf through from conception to end.
