Event staging

“Clients say, ‘They are a pleasure to work with. We get the right balance between being professional and having fun doing it’.”

Chambers UK, 2016

Our sports lawyers have advised and worked on live events such as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Invictus Games and the PGA European Tour. You will work with lawyers who are true sports experts, who have a passion for live sporting events and an in-depth understanding of the industry and the pressures you face when delivering an event.

Staging a successful sports event or tournament involves the co-operation of multiple stakeholders – the venue, participants, broadcasters, sponsors, promoters, suppliers and the media. You can rely on our industry know-how and experience to negotiate commercially focused arrangements tailored to your specific needs.

Our clients include sports rights owners, sports governing bodies, promoters and managers, sponsors and participants. Drawing on our extensive experience of supporting clients to stage sporting events both in the UK and abroad, we can guide you on both the legal and commercial aspects of your arrangements.
