As the commercialisation of sport continues to grow, and issues of human rights and integrity within sport gain prominence, the fascinating niche of Sports Law builds momentum.
Our team has experience guiding sports related clients through complex dispute resolutions, providing employment and governance advice and assisting with commercial arrangements.
Associates Beth Smith and Adine Wilson also bring a unique perspective as former New Zealand athletes, with knowledge of athlete rights and welfare drawn from personal experiences in the sporting world, together with experience in sports governance.
In collaboration with MC’s Tautoru practice we can also advise sports clients on issues related to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, tikanga Māori, and Pacific customs.
