Contract & Employment Law

Employment relationships are at the core of professional sports. Above the complexities of employment law, are a whole raft of regulations created by the unique nature of the sports industry, this adds to the need for specialist advice.

We advise both sides of the employment relationship on the regulatory and commercial aspects of employment in sport, whether it be transfer and loan issues, compensation issues, image rights or mainstream employment matters.

We have acted in employment matters for major governing bodies, sports clubs and individuals from helping draft standard forms of contract laid down by a governing body to advising an academy and youth players on their future.

How long does an 'Employment Tribunal' take?

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take  8-10 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 8- 18 months. This is just an estimate and we will, of course, be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
