Family Law for Professional Sportspeople

Specialist family law support for athletes, from prenuptial agreements to complex divorces.

We support professional sporting clients at the beginning of new relationships, or to help them navigate a separation, all with the utmost confidence. 

We provide specialist asset protection advice and support with prenuptial agreements or living together agreements to protect the wealth and confidentiality of those clients.

Divorce can be complicated and stressful. Divorce involving high profile or successful professional sportspeople adds further complexity and needs specialist advisors who know how to handle these types of cases, including to ensure that confidentiality is protected at all times.  

As a team, we have extensive experience in this area and are used to understanding the income structure of those in various professional sporting spheres, including professional jockeys and footballers, as well as the limited life-span of some careers and how to factor this into the advice we provide. 

We also provide advice to professional sporting clients with issues arising relating to children, including paternity issues, school fees, child arrangements and financial claims relating to children (including child maintenance and Schedule 1).

When necessary, we work closely with our wider employment and litigation teams to ensure that holistic advice is considered to protect you in all areas of your life off the sporting field or court.

We take a careful, considered and commercial approach to your case, working closely with experts to help value your interests and to ensure that any settlement includes a fair consideration of the nature of the assets you have built from your career. 

We welcome enquiries from professional sporting clients, or their agents and can work with you to ensure absolute confidence in the initial meeting and beyond.
