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.
