Legal Commentary

“Dolmans has a robust commercial offering, which handles a significant amount of contractual drafting and governance work, in particular, for private, public sector and third sector clients. A significant amount of this work is on behalf of sports clients (including federations), an area in which Adrian Oliver and Tom Harris are particularly skilled.”
