We have many years of experience in all areas of sports law. Drafting and negotiating contracts is just as much part of our core activities as in-court assertion of claims and providing strategic advice. We advise agencies, sports associations and media companies on marketing sports rights and developing new marketing strategies, paying particular attention to the possibilities offered by new media. We support sports clubs, sport-related public limited companies and individual sports personalities in planning and implementing sporting events and help to protect their contract rights. We also advise rights owners on protecting intellectual property rights and copyright.
