The City office of a major international law firm.


A mid level Sports & Media Rights Associate is needed to join a busy team in London which services a wide range of sports-related clients and matters.

As major sports organisations have become more global, their need for multi-jurisdictional legal services has increased. It is essential these organisations retain lawyers experienced in the sports law of the operative jurisdictions to achieve their desired objectives.

This firm's sports industry team offers experience and knowledge on a national and international basis from decades of dedicated practice in the numerous legal disciplines at play in the sports industry, including commercial rights, intellectual property, media, entertainment, transactional, finance, branding, endorsing and merchandising, franchising, tax, antitrust, competition and regulatory, labor and employment, employee benefits, real estate, construction, and corporate restructuring, as well as dispute resolution.

They have acted for leading global, U.S., European, and U.K. sports-governing bodies, professional sports teams and franchises, leagues, athletes (both amateur and professional), sponsors (global and domestic), broadcasting personalities, mobile networks and on-line operators, merchandisers, hospitality and travel companies, betting and gaming operators, and financiers, as well as sports businesses and promoters.


A talented individual ideally with 2-5pqe, with strong sports & media rights experience.

This role will offer you good client contact from the start and the scope to trade off the firm's large international platform.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy. Please note our advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
