Regulations Rule the Rink:
Finding a Figure Skating Expert
- Services Provided: Expert Witness
Salchows, axels, loops, and lutzes. You may have all the moves, but there is no skating around the rules. IMS Consulting & Expert Services kept it cool for a case requiring an authority on figure skating regulations and their potential career ramifications.
A former Olympic figure skater’s bid to be released to a new team was restricted by their current team, allegedly preventing the young competitor from training for the buildup to the next Olympic Games.
An internal research team submitted eight potential experts over an expedited (five business days) period. Vetted by an IMS recruiter, the candidate pool included an independent hockey professional, skating coaches, and a former competitive figure skater.
The chosen expert was the founder of an international sports governance consultancy with more than 15 years of experience. His former role at the International Skating Union headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, gave him firsthand knowledge of ISU rules and cases—including several exceptions for release.
The court dismissed this case without prejudice.
