DLA Piper

DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, positioning us to help clients with their legal needs around the world.

We strive to be the leading global business law firm by delivering quality and value to our clients. We achieve this through practical and innovative legal solutions that help our clients succeed. We deliver consistent services across our platform of practices and sectors in all matters we undertake.

We understand sport - We are recognised market leaders, acting for many of the world's leading sports leagues, clubs, franchise owners, Olympic and world event organisers, international and national governing bodies and federations, financiers, stadium and venue developers, investors, banks, and other leading corporations and individuals on some of their most complex issues. We regularly work with clients on establishing, staging, running and administering sports events across the world: structuring and papering commercial exploitation programmes, media and data exploitation, protecting and enforcing our client's IP. We know the issues impacting stadium owners, and we regularly advise on sports regulatory and administrative issues at the highest level.

We understand sports media and technology - We bring with us specialist legal expertise in the exploitation of sports media rights and advise corporate sponsors, broadcasters, advertisers, rights holders, agencies and promoters, studios and producers, distributors, internet and entertainment companies, whilst acting as a trusted commercial adviser. We help clients develop, launch and operate innovative media services (as well as simply selling rights) - working collaboratively on the entire process. Our lawyers are also well positioned to provide a full range of business legal services to the emerging esports industry.
