Lewis Silkin’s leading Sports Business Group works with many of the world’s best known sports brands, as well as for sponsors, agencies and venues across a wide range of sports.
Lewis Silkin’s Sports Business Group is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading sports practices. We have a substantial team of highly experienced sports lawyers with specialists in sports disputes, employment, commercial, immigration, IP, data and corporate matters. We take a very commercial approach to providing legal advice and pride ourselves on being easy to work with, providing clients with the solution-focused, easy to consume advice they want. As a firm of 64 partners and over 340 members of staff, our specialist sports lawyers also have the benefit of working with lawyers with other technical and sector expertise, enabling them to draw on this to the benefit of our sports clients.
We work across a very wide range of sports, and with many sports businesses. Much of our work is in football where we have advised 10 Premier League teams on matters ranging from disputes, transfers, coach hiring/firing, immigration, IP, commercial, corporate and data protection matters. We also act for 3 Premiership rugby teams, a Formula One team and a Formula E team and work in horse racing, boxing, cycling, e-sports, golf and other Olympic sports. As well as representing clubs, teams and other sports bodies, we work with sports agencies, events and venues, athletes, and brands sponsoring sports properties.
