In-house Counsel Forum to take place at 2017 LawInSport Conference

published on 31 August 2017

With the LawInSport 3rd Annual Conference will bring together three heavy-weight in-house lawyers from major sports and media organisations to discuss recent developments in the sector.

As sports organisations mature and grow the need for effective in-house counsel becomes of increasing importance to the success of the organisation. However, different sports organisations require different skill sets and take their own approach to how they utilise their in-house counsel.

This panel will look at the varied role that lawyers play in their respective organisations and discuss the recent developments and best practice for lawyers working within sports businesses; with a strong focus on the commercial and corporate focus.

The panel, chaired by Rich Brand - Managing Partner and Head of Sports Group at Arent Fox LLP - features:

  • Martin Mosley, Head of Commercial Legal Services at Manchester United

  • Vered Yakovee, Assistant General Counsel at Miami Heat

  • Ashley Ehlert, Legal Counsel at International Ice Hockey Federation

The two-day LawInSport conference will also offer unrivaled networking opportunity with the leading experts, lawyers and executives in the sports sector as well as 12 interactive panel discussions.
