Sport

A premier service for sports professionals and businesses.

SA Law’s Sport team has an outstanding international reputation.

We advise a number of high-profile stakeholders in the sports industry, including a number of sporting venues, associations, agents and football clubs. As well as acting for athletes, show jumpers, racing drivers, footballers and their spouses. We are a leading force in international motorsports and are one of only a handful of UK law firms that have a niche specialism in equestrian law.

Our experienced Sport team has been ranked as number one nationally for a number of years by independent research bodies, so clients can expect to benefit from legal advisers who are recommended for having a proven track record of success. Our established position within the sports industry makes us best placed to truly understand our clients’ needs, issues and strategic objectives.

Not only do we know the law; all of our Sport team have wide-ranging experience as owners, managers, competitors and participants within professional sport. We use our extensive knowledge of the industry to advantage when acting for commercial organisations in the negotiations and/or disputes with sporting clubs and individuals. We draft and negotiate contracts for sponsorship, partnerships and supply agreements. We can also advise on intellectual property and copyright and employment issues, including negotiating and drafting compromise agreements. Along with commercial legal advice, we can advise you on issues ranging from setting up charitable trusts, contract negotiations and immigration, to investment, tax, property and conveyancing advice.

HOW WE HELP YOU

  • Our focus is on complete client satisfaction. Discretion and confidentiality are also of paramount importance to us and our clients. Due to the often complex nature of the cases we advise on, our dedicated team works collaboratively with you to harness a strong working relationship.
