States and public authorities have for the most part intervened to a limited extent in sport, instead leaving the organization and regulation of sport in the hands of sports federations. Sport is, however, increasingly attracting the attention of governments, which are utilizing it to achieve social and economic objectives.

Should there be a comma before "which"? I'm not sure whether the "which" clause is restrictive or not.

Thanks.

OK, I've never been a professional proofreader, so I'll just have to accept that correcting grammar and punctuation is not part of the job description.

;-) No, a proofreader's skills are much more refined! You need to know not only what to correct but also when to correct. One important factor which I forgot to mention is that lawyers are often working to short deadlines set by clients, and in turn so am I - if a lawyer's client needs a document back by close of business for signing, as is often the case, then you simply have to work to that.
