We help sports stars and organisations overcome their hurdles.

Our work for sporting clients covers everything from governance advice, to funding for new facilities, to taking care of trade marks. Our clients are equally varied, ranging from grassroots clubs to national governing bodies (NGBs) and world-class sportspeople.

Sports charity work is a core focus for the team. We set up charities for the Rugby Football Union, British Gymnastics and the ECB. And thanks to campaigning by our founder, Andrew Phillips, amateur sports clubs get tax relief through the CASC scheme.
