Sports Law

Providing assistance to athletes and sporting organisations

sports Law

Oliver has a huge amount of passion and knowledge for everything sport related, and this is key when it comes to Sports Law. 

Most sports organisations are subject to the usual accounting rules and financial controls that apply under general company law. There are no statutory controls within the United Kingdom that apply specifically to sport. 

It would be best described as the application of the law to a sporting context covering the following matters:

 

 Media and broadcast compliance

– Drafting of sponsorship agreements

– Trademark protection

– Merchandising law

– Sports endorsements

– Protection of intellectual property for teams, athletes and sporting events, including the usage of names, logos, images and signage.

– Public liability law for sporting venues – including guidelines for safety.

– Sports governance – including advice on legislation, setting up business entities, drafting constitutional laws/by-laws, and advice for club directors.

– Advice on matters involving performance-enhancing drugs – including assistance with drafting anti-doping policies and legal representation for athletes in court.
