How can we help?
To access legal support from just £125 per hour arrange your free no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your business requirements.
We offer legal advice and representation to national governing bodies, international federations, sports clubs, and athletes in any sport, whether amateur or professional.
We understand the importance of protecting the reputation and interests of those we represent. Everything we do and recommend will be done so with confidentiality and your reputation in mind.
Our sports solicitors can offer a range of strategies to resolve your matter. When it comes to sports law disputes, we are strong advocates for alternative dispute resolution methods in the first instance, as these can lead to amicable resolutions which are realised faster, with less cost, and without long term damage to relationships; a key reason why many clients seek our services.
Our offices are in Sheffield, Birmingham, Cambridge, Manchester and London if you require a face-to-face meeting, but we typically work remotely to keep our overheads low which enables us to offer our innovative pricing packages.
Our sports law solicitors not only possess expertise in the latest sports law, but also understand the industry; including its structures, regulations, challenges, pressures, trends, and developments. With this knowledge, we provide smart, pragmatic, insightful and tailored law services for any sports industry stakeholder.
Our team is here to help you achieve your ambitions and realise your vision of success. Because we are a full-service law firm, sports teams, clubs, organisations, and individuals who seek our services automatically benefit from our holistic legal expertise in the areas of immigration, commercial and contract law, intellectual property, litigation and contentious disputes, corporate governance and transactions, and employment law.
As a sports law firm, our solicitors can advise and represent you in a wide range of sporting legal matters including:
Sports governance is particularly robust within the UK and is strictly upheld. We can advise and represent you in relation to any matters involving a sports governing organisation, whether for a specific sport, such as the Football Association, Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), or an overarching body such as the International Olympic Committee (IoC), or the Commonwealth Games Federation. We specialise in resolving complex sports disputes such as complaints, disciplinaries, investigations, and suspensions.
Expert contract/agreement drafting is essential in the sports industry, to ensure the proper protection of individuals, clubs, teams, sponsors and other organisations. By taking the time to draft an agreement which meets both your immediate and longer-term needs, you can be assured that regardless of what then eventuates, all scenarios have been taken into account. We will consider possibilities such as injury, early termination, bonuses, performance, and legal obligations. We can assist with drafting:
