Our Industry Focus

Sports & Entertainment

Sports is an emerging area of practice in the country, both from the business as well as the legal standpoint. Our lawyers, however, have been at the forefront of discharging quality legal advice to this nascent practice area. In an industry which is still finding its direction, challenges emerge, on a day-to-day basis and clients require hand-holding even before the structure of the entity is formalized. On account of our understanding of Governing Bodies, Sports Federations, League Owners, Sports Management companies, Sportspersons, Broadcasters, the specialist dispute resolution mechanism, etc., we have been able to deliver solutions that are legally sound and commercially feasible.

Our holistic approach to the sector is rooted in our conceptual understanding of sports and its business ecosystem. Operational on ground assistance with multi-disciplinary approach has been the cornerstone of our body of work in this nascent and ever-evolving sector of Law. In addition to the advisory, our lawyers have a large body of work in terms of developing the legal structure in terms of advising on sports policy, authoring books, articles and even conducting sports law programmes in educational institutions.

Our lawyers have experience in:

Engaging with Sports Federations and commercial rights holders, through the entire lifecycle of a Professional League including conceptualisation, league structuring, documentation for the league, teams, players, etc., sale of commercial rights, documentation and due diligence, setting up and administration of Governing Council, player auctions, operationalization of the league, and dispute resolution.

Engaging with various stakeholders for operationalization of Leagues for the sports of Kabaddi, Badminton, Polo, Snooker and Table Tennis.
