Explaining Sport law

Sports contracts are critical to the development of a sports person’s career prospects. There is no doubt that you or the athlete you represent will want to secure the most compatible contract for you. That’s where a solicitor with a tight control over contractual law should get involved. Avoid all the issues that can arise when you work with an unreliable contract full of holes, and reach out to our team now! 

Intellectual property law may be something you need to seriously consider if you need to patent an invention or creation that pushes sportspeople to better their performance. If you believe someone has ripped off your invention, we can also help to resolve the dispute – always working towards your ideal end result.

If you or the athlete you represent work in a high risk sector, you may need to consider the chances of sports injuries occurring. If they do, you may want to raise a dispute or take your disputant to court. That’s where we come in.

If you feel you have been the victim of a negligent referee or umpire, if you have used damaged sports equipment that has ended up injuring you, if you feel you have been the victim of dangerous conduct from another athlete or team, or for another reason entirely, you will want a professional solicitor to deal with your claim.

and opportunities, which our firm is uniquely placed to help you navigate.
