Sports

We have acted for a number of professional sports clubs and organisations both nationally and within the county. Amongst our current clients are Leicester City FC, Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Leicester Racecourse and several golf clubs. We have developed considerable experience in advising this sector on a wide range of legal issues.

Work undertaken covers most of our practice areas including, property sales and purchases, dispute resolution, employment and contractual issues relating to players, regulatory issues, intellectual property rights and commercial agreements.

We have also acted for many high profile sportsmen and sportswomen, including football, rugby and cricket players and managers in relation to their contractual arrangements their exits from them, their licensing rights and their legal affairs in general.

Our name is associated with sporting organisations throughout the County appearing on prominent advertising boards at Welford Road and Grace Road, the home grounds of the Leicester Tigers and Leicestershire County Cricket Club, a Box at Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium, and the finishing post at Leicester Racecourse.  We also have hole sponsorship arrangements with various golf clubs and sponsor Rothley Park Cricket Club while one of our employment partners, Andrew Rowell, is Club Secretary at Leicestershire County Cricket Club. This reflects our involvement in the provision of legal services to the sports sector and our desire to support sport in our County and our communities.
