Withers understands the global dimensions of the sports industry and we focus on putting clients at the centre of our business and commercial activities to provide connected and co-ordinated advice. We are an international law firm with over 1,100 staff in offices in Europe, Asia Pacific and the United States. We act for international sportsmen and sportswomen, clubs and club owners, associations, retailers, sponsors, sports management and marketing companies, promoters, broadcasters and agents, as well as for their corporate and business interests in multiple jurisdictions. These clients appreciate the experience and skills that we have developed in acting for celebrities and successful people around the world and our ability to operate wherever their interests take them.

We understand the importance of working closely with established advisers and of taking appropriate foreign law advice, where necessary, to ensure that a solution that works in some jurisdictions, does not carry hidden risks in others. We have developed close links to firms across the world and these links are consolidated by our role as a leading firm participating in a variety of complex international legal work.
