We can advise and assist on all manner of contracts and arrangements to optimise our client’s situation and with a view to ensuring their talents and efforts are properly rewarded. We benefit from high level connections with prominent industry figures in football, rugby, boxing and athletics at national and international level. We have also advised those involved in the worlds of film, television, theatre and the music industry as well as those in the public eye generally, including business people and politicians. From time to time, individuals or companies find themselves (willingly or not) in the news or media and we can provide swift and assured advice both pre- and post-publication and take action for those who wish to protect their reputations or their privacy or who wish to prevent harassment.
