Sports and Entertainment Law
The increasing globalization and commercialization of Sports and Entertainment has meant these are presently high profile industries, generating significant revenues. Regulating bodies, corporations, clubs and individuals currently face stern legal demands, whether regulatory or commercial in nature. It is therefore crucial that legal matters be assessed by those best qualified, with a thorough understanding of the relevant legal implications and an insightful perspective of the Sports and Entertainment market. Sports and Entertainment related issues can potentially cover areas such as Employment, Intellectual Property and Competition, among others.
For the above reasons, the Firm has created a Sports & Entertainment Law practice that addresses the demands brought upon individuals and corporations by globalisation and increasing commercialism, on a preventive and contentious basis. Our lawyers have the necessary academic and professional backgrounds, established by years of personal experience in the world of competitive sports and entertainment, both as advisors and participants.
