Chen Palmer specialises in Sports Law and acts for a number of high profile sportspeople and sporting organisations. We can assist you in negotiating and drafting player contracts and funding and sponsorships agreements. We also deal with employment and contractor issues for sporting organisations which engage staff, and with drafting the constitutions and rules which govern those bodies.
We also represent clients in relation to disciplinary matters arising out of sporting events and alleged rule breaches.
In addition, we specialise in providing strategic advice to sportspeople and sporting organisations in relation to managing and enhancing their public profile, including dealing with the legal issues and risks arising out of public events.
Building on our Public Law practice, we provide assistance to sporting bodies seeking to lobby Government or other agencies in relation to support and funding arrangements, and regarding any associated legal issues, and assist sporting organisations in lawfully complying with their obligations to international bodies. We also advise on tax and commercial issues, including establishing new entities and advising and representing clients in any tax controversy.
