Sports Law

Our sports lawyers have a passion for sport and a competitive drive to help get the right outcomes for clients.


Carbon Law Partners has particular expertise in regulatory, governance and integrity matters. At the heart of sport are the rules that govern it, both on and off the field of play.


Our lawyers are experienced in advising on the implications of these rules for the wide variety of participants in the sports industry, from individual athletes and teams to suppliers into the market.
