Justin is co-head (and founder) of our Sport Group. He is based in our office in London.
He has wide-ranging experience of the corporate, commercial and regulatory aspects of the media, sports and entertainment industries and a particularly strong reputation in media and marketing rights work. His practice is mainly transactional but also extends to commercial dispute resolution and disciplinary matters.
Justin is recognised as much for his business as his legal advisory skills. He has an exceptional passion and understanding of the business of sport and all its component parts bringing clarity and originality to his work product. He has a particularly strong reputation in media and marketing rights work, including the creation, protection, management, staging and exploitation of sporting events and properties for a range of clients including international federations, national governing bodies, venues, event organisers and sponsors.
Justin has been rated as a leading authority in this sector in the relevant sections of the UK and European legal directories since 2005.
He is highly regarded in the sector, and his experience is such that client sources view him not just as a leading lawyer, but "as an incredibly valuable sports business adviser." (Chambers UK 2012).
