As Senior Partner I have a breadth of experience across a number of specialisms, however, since setting up Beswicks Sports in 1999, my primary focus has been sports law.
I have extensive knowledge of the sports, media and entertainment world and have provided commercial and practical advice to the media and entertainment industries. I advise the football and cricket worlds and have close links in athletics, snooker, golf and tournament organisations, including arranging international players for high profile events. I have been involved in numerous contractual negotiations at all levels.
As well as being ranked among the elite leading lawyers nationwide by the Legal 500, I am an Orlando City founder and former director of the Major League Soccer club, and a trustee of the Stoke City Football Club Community Trust.
Typical areas I deal with include:
- Managing and advising top international sports men and women
- Sourcing and negotiating commercial and playing contracts
- Promotion of the client
- Post-career planning
- Sourcing and negotiating media contracts
- Management contracts & recording agreements
