Sports Law

The Sports Law team advises a range of sport entities including national governing bodies, clubs, teams, sponsors and commercial partners.

Straightforward and practical advice

We have assisted sporting bodies to re-draft their rules, regulations and constitutional documents to reflect the modern world of professional sport and improve their organisational structures to align with regulatory requirements.

Some members of our team sit as board members of sporting organisations and have first-hand experience of the administrative, governance and compliance issues that sporting bodies are required to address. Our considerable experience in this area will ensure that you receive appropriate advice in the most straightforward and practical terms.

Our areas of legal expertise include:

  • Regulatory and governance

  • Selection procedures

  • Commercial contracts

  • Football transfers and contracts

  • Anti-doping and other disciplinary matters

  • Litigation and dispute resolution

  • Sponsorship and partnership arrangements

  • Property, premises and planning

  • Intellectual property and image rights

  • Health and safety
