Our specialist team has advised renowned sports stars on a range of legal issues across many disciplines for years. Our commitment to sports stars begins at the outset of a career, negotiating early contracts and ensuring that athletes and sports stars are protected when the balance of power can be very different, when the financials can be critical and when the individual may be young and inexperienced. Our clients include athletes, boxers, football players, football and sporting clubs, sponsors, federations and sports agents and agencies. For clubs and associations, we often form part of an in-house legal team to provide specialist support on specific issues.
From negotiating contracts to dealing with disputes and renegotiation, we provide dedicated support and have experience in dealing with internal club disciplinary procedures.
We are regularly referred sporting individuals from accountants or other professional advisers and we’ll always work to an agreed strategy.
