Media Rights

The outstanding economic development in sport is closely connected to the immense growth in media rights values. Licensing agreements in respect of media rights (for distribution via television, the Internet, mobile telephony and radio) are a major source of income for any sports rights holder. We help sports rights holders to realise their full potential in exploitation of those rights.
Our decades of experience in the sports industry enables us to support our clients both strategically and conceptually through providing guidance and practical assistance with negotiating and drafting appropriate agreements.
