Sport

Our team of sports lawyers are equipped with a blend of technical expertise and practical understanding, resulting in securing the right solutions for you.

We act for individuals, clubs and team sponsors and right holders on issues arising both on and off the field of play.

Player and driver contracts

In any area of law, independent legal advice should always be sought before signing a contract and sport is no exception. Our experience includes advising GP2 and rally drivers and teams on driver and testing contracts and advising a first team coach of a leading County Cricket Club regarding his contract.

Brand, image rights, reputation management and privacy

There are a number of options when faced with a violation of privacy or a breach of image rights, our team can give you sound advice on how to proceed. Our experts also advise on the agreements involved in exploitation of brand and image and commercial rights, including media, new media and marketing rights.

Disciplinary Hearings

We are experienced in representing clients from all sports when disciplinary hearings are called.

Sports governance

Our lawyers have extensive experience of drafting the rules and regulations for sport governing bodies, as well as regulatory issues as they apply to the sport sector. We advise directors, administrators and senior management of major sports organisations to ensure that their governing documents and corporate structures are relevant, consistent and compliant with the latest law and guidance.
