Sports & Entertainment Law


Dealing with contract negotiations for the first time can be a daunting prospect, especially if you are talking to national and international marketing and media companies.

Obtaining professional legal advice before you sign any agreement or contract ensures that your interests are protected in the short term and the long term. An experienced solicitor will be able to spot any restrictive clauses or terms and conditions that could limit your future earning potential or curb your ambitions in another way.

Many contracts in the world of sport and entertainment can include specific conditions that individuals may not fully understand. There is then a risk of them being sued if they inadvertently breach these terms. Obtaining professional legal advice at the outset can spare you distressing and expensive complications later in your career.

How we can help

At Else Solicitors, we can thoroughly explain all the implications of a deal you have been offered – and help you negotiate better terms if appropriate.

With our astute commercial awareness we can advise individuals, clubs, agents and media companies on image and naming rights and how to maximise revenues and protect intellectual property rights.

Specific issues where we can help include:

  • Personal appearance agreements.
  • Image rights agreements.
  • Sponsorship agreements.
  • Agreements for presenters and columnists.
  • Endorsement and merchandising agreements.
  • Brand rights.
  • Agreements with event managers, promoters and the media.
