The Steering Committee welcomes up to 48 preeminent private practice sports lawyers who represent the interests of athletes, teams, leagues, associations, governing bodies, sponsors and broadcasters to explore common concerns, exchange ideas and resolve challenges faced on behalf of these clients.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion, the group identifies trends and developments in their varied jurisdictions for meaningful dialogue on the most interesting and provocative issues of the day.
Built on genuine interactions and spontaneous connections, the Forum is a unique opportunity for timely and practical discussions while creating meaningful connections among preeminent leaders in sports law.
"From my personal experience, this Forum is a must attend as it features a small annual gathering of elite-level private practice sports lawyers representing the interests of athletes, teams, leagues, associations, governing bodies, sponsors and broadcasters from around the world."Jeffrey A. Mishkin Partner, Antitrust and Competition; Sports; Litigation Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP New York, United States
"An unparalleled opportunity to meet and learn from some of the world’s foremost sports lawyers. The Forum has been inspiring, not merely informative. It has given me fresh ideas for the development of my practice. The Forum format allows ideas/opinions to be immediately tested and, sometimes, enhanced by illustrations from the extensive experience of delegates. This is the first conference in 10 years I have attended without being a speaker. I have learned more in 36 hours than I would normally ever do."Sean Jones, QC Barrister 11KBW London, United Kingdom
"Meeting top practitioners is a must and it gave me access to knowledge information and new acquaintances. The format gives the floor to a more practical interaction than the “usual” seminars."Juan de Dios Crespo Perez Head of Sports Law Department Ruiz-Huerta & Crespo Valencia, Spain
