Unlike many firms that claim to have sports lawyers, we have genuine sports expertise combined with one of the biggest technology teams in the UK. We understand the digital sports sector, the businesses that operate in it and the opportunities technological advances present through our breadth of experience and passion for the industry.
Our Digital Sports lawyers concentrate on the latest developments in this fast-moving world and identify the potential impact of changes in regulation and elsewhere, leaving you free to focus on what matters to you.
The commercial opportunities arising from the emerging technologies borne out of Web3 in areas like metaverse-driven broadcasting experience, blockchain-based ticketing, fan tokenisation and the commercialisation of performance data, bring novel legal implications which need to be carefully considered in order to protect your sports business.
We also offer support regarding commercial arrangements and IP licensing relating to the growing world of e-sports, for organisations and e-athletes alike.
Whatever your business within the world of Digital Sport, our legal experts can support you to achieve your goals and defend you from unpredictable pitfalls with practical advice and solutions.
