Women’s sport is a key focus of our Sports & Entertainment Group, comprising leading lawyers across jurisdictions and practice areas, with unrivalled industry knowledge, connections, and experience.
We are committed to supporting and facilitating the growth of women’s sport globally. We believe that the sporting and commercial opportunities are exponential as women’s sport (quite rightly) becomes more popular and visible worldwide.
At this important moment for women’s sport, stakeholders are presented with unique opportunities – and challenges – to ensure its full potential is realized. Our market-leading team of sports lawyers has a real understanding of the issues that matter and how to make an impact. We advise our clients across the full spectrum of legal services, including commercial, regulatory and contentious matters impacting the fast-growing women’s sport industry.
Our team is approachable and proactive, and passionate about the growth and influence of women’s sport. We are proud to be at the forefront of these critical developments and to support our clients in achieving their aims and aspirations.
Our lawyers sit on various ad hoc disciplinary, governance and anticorruption panels.
We are also thought leaders and are regularly published in industry publications. Of note are our contributions to the text Football and the Law (second edition, published in 2022), in which our lawyers authored chapters on Player Transfers and Immigration and Governing Body Endorsements, which included a specific focus on rules relevant to women’s football.
Commitment to Pro Bono
We have a longstanding commitment to pro bono services that promote equal justice and provide service for those with limited resources. Our pro bono legacy is deeply rooted in our dedication to the communities where we live and work around the world. We actively encourage and support our lawyers in answering the call to serve and volunteer their legal services.
