Professionals in all sports have had and will have to consider a contract that has been placed before them throughout their career. Whether it is an employment contract, or a sponsorship contract, it is vital that both parties to the contract mutually understand the agreement before it is signed. Failing to do so will inevitably lead to a dispute between the parties, which must be resolved in order for the working relationship to continue.
The team at Mercantile Barristers are used to taking instructions on advising on the terms of sporting contracts and representing all clients in enforcing those rights in alternative dispute resolution or litigation.
Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.
However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.
Whether by adjudication, arbitration, litigation, members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
