The business of sport is worth billions to the Irish economy. Our sport group advises many public and private entities in the health and sport sectors. The group is led by Philip Lee and supported by senior associate Eoin Brereton. Anne Bateman is the firm’s data protection partner and advises our sport sector clients on all aspects of intellectual property, data protection and privacy.
Complementing our work in traditional sectors, our sports team, together with those in corporate, technology, media and entertainment, collectively advise publishers, broadcasters, sponsors, teams and investors involved in eSports. Given the existing breadth of the gaming sector, Ireland and the UK are well positioned to lead the European charge in this buoyant sector.
We advise on the following areas:
In Philip Lee, we encourage an ethos of sport, wellbeing and community. Our sponsorship of parkrun Ireland, a weekly 5K run at 30 locations around Ireland, and of various other sport events, aligns the firm with this philosophy.
Society recognises the incredible value of sport to our health, to addressing the needs of children and to halting the increasing rate of obesity. Read about sport related consumer spending, participation, sponsorship, policy and professionalism in The Philip Lee Sport Report.
We advise on sport, live it and love the results it can bring. This is a growing sector for us and one which we greatly enjoy working in.
