Integrity is the essence of sports. The integrity of sports comes under attack by doping by giving athletes to move away from the level playing field. We often advise our clients, pro bono, on complying with the WADA Code and have represented athletes before both, the national anti-doping disciplinary and the appeal panel.
We understand how to represent, protect and extract the most value from image and brand rights for artists and media companies. Our services include advising on negotiations encompassing acquisition, protection, distribution and exploitation of rights along with expertise in drafting talent, performers, creative rights and content related agreements.
Formulating marketing strategies, advising on commercial engagements when hiring agencies and consultants and planning promotional events are some of the many management advisory services offered by us.
Having represented India’s top athletes, like Sushil Kumar, and some of the leading corporates in the business before various high courts and arbitration tribunals, we work with our clients to device litigation strategies and engage with some of the leading counsels in cities across India.
We advise our clients on the management of numerous intellectual property rights including brand & image rights, personality rights along with assisting them in filing applications for trademark, copyright, patent registrations and defend against breaches or infringements of such rights.
We regularly act for football teams supporting them in all aspects of player transfer and contract negotiations. This includes advice on key documentation such as transfer agreements, loan agreements and player agreements by adding value beyond just execution by providing thought leadership and insight drawn from our experience.
