Sports & Esports

We deliver commercially focused, practical solutions to a wide range of legal issues in the sports and Esports sector with a wealth of experience.

Our Service

Fladgate’s industry experience and insight, and the commercial mindset that typifies our approach, enables us to provide our clients with pragmatic advice and anticipate problems rather than merely reacting to them. We have been involved with many high-profile events and transactions, but we are equally at home handling the everyday aspects of the sports business.

Our clients include sports professionals and teams, organising and governing bodies, and sponsors and agents. We have advised on a number of world games and other major sporting events and have considerable experience of acting for rights holders and hosts in respect of single venues or events with venues in multiple cities or countries.

Fladgate is renowned for having a deep understanding of the Esports sector and our Esports team has exceptional expertise in advising stakeholders on international major sporting events, commercial rights exploitation, and complex commercial litigation in sport. We also have a market leading reputation for international sports investment and finance.

We have an ‘end-to-end’ ability to work with all stakeholders, ranging from governing bodies, rights holders, clubs and institutions to agencies, investors, funders and athletes. Our specialist lawyers have hands-on practical experience. We utilise our knowledge and networks to seek opportunities for our clients and deliver robust and proactive solutions.
