Description

Sports Solicitor

A rare opportunity has arisen with this major commercial firm, a leading light in sports law work.

The team has won countless awards for its sports law work, including 'Sports Lawyer of the Year' several times, 'Sports Law Firm of the Year', 'Best Sports Law Firm, 'Best Sports-Focused M&A Team', 'Best Professional Business Serving Football', 'UK Sports Law Firm of the Year' amongst others.

They are one of the few firms to offer a truly comprehensive suite of sports law advisory services, regularly dealing with instructions from several Premier League football clubs, many Champions League clubs and many lower league clubs as well as a number of high profile rugby clubs.

They offer the full spectrum of legal services, both contentious and non-contentious, such as sponsorship deals, transfer matters, sales & acquisitions, brand matters, restructuring, insolvency, employment & immigration matters, disciplinary hearings, real estate matters and player & manager negotiations.

They are busy and expanding and are now looking to take on a junior solicitor to join the team. Ideally you will already have gained a grounding in sports law matters within a recognised sports or commercial practice, but solid commercial lawyers with a demonstrable interest in sports will also be considered. As a minimum you should have solid academics and have trained with a highly regarded City, national or regional commercial firm, or in-house within a relevant organisation.

Applications are welcome from lawyers coming up to qualification this year or up to 2 years' PQE.

The firm offers a top tier salary along with a solid rack of benefits and an agile working policy.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
