The global nature of sport means that a number of organisations in different sector are keen to associate themselves with sports governing bodies, sports leagues, sports teams and sports personalities. These organistations are willing to pay vast sums over considerable periods of time for this privilege and naturally clients will require sound experience and legal advice to negotiate terms and draft appropriate contracts.
Barristers at Mercantile have the requisite sporting, commercial and legal experience that has seen them advise clients on both sides of such transactions, not only to secure funding clients require to participate in their sport; but also provide clients diverse opportunities for the sponsoring company to get their product name seen by potential customers.
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.
