Mark Loosemore is well-placed to provide ‘commercial and pragmatic advice’ that is tailored to the specific needs of sports clients. Although the firm is active across the full range of sports, it continues to be perhaps best-known for its representation of Football Association of Wales, where its work includes advice on governance structures, TV deals and sponsorship agreements. ‘Outstanding’ associate Rebecca McCarthy recently returned from maternity leave and provides expertise on the interface of charities and sports law.”
