Sports Law

Our firm is at the forefront of the commercial advancement of sport in South Africa.
Commercial success and commercial opportunity are the core principles that drive our motivation to assist those individuals with our expertise and knowledge of the sports industry.
A sportspersons’ success often comes with benefits relating to increasingly valuable sponsorship contracts – and as a result so too do disputes, such as:

  • The nature of associations governing particular sports and the sponsorship and broadcast agreements they include
  • Litigation involving individual contracts, collective agreements, tax issues and disciplinary issues.

We specialise in alternative dispute resolution so as to affect as short a time as possible. Such awards however, must be achieved within the time constraints imposed by the sporting environment rather than within the needs of lawyers and courts.
