They share their first-hand experiences having worked for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as in-house legal support, as well as providing sport branding legal advice to event organisers, sports brands, sponsors and other rights holders in private practices, looking at the opportunities and common challenges legal teams are facing in the sporting world.
