What we do

Our specialist team provides a full range of sports legal services to our clients, from representing clients at sports tribunals and hearings within governing bodies’ national and international courts, to advising on regulatory and commercial matters, such as intellectual property rights and sponsorship agreements, and acting on disputes that arise from commercial sports contracts.

Our multi-disciplinary team also advises our sports clients in relation to corporate finance and restructuring, employment, insurance, construction and development (in relation to sports stadia) and licensing advice. 

What we are known for

Unlike many firms that claim to have sports lawyers, we have genuine sports expertise. We understand our clients, their business, and what is important to them through our breadth of experience of passion for the industry. In particular, we are recognised as the market leaders in the field of sports injury. In addition, our leading Insurance Sports practice advises on all insurance related sports matters to include high profile sports related catastrophic and life changing sports injuries, indemnity, liability risks, coverage and policy wording.

The team also offers a global reach, in an increasingly worldwide industry, through a network of offices and associations, across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australasia.
