The Role Of A Solicitor

A solicitor is trained to take instructions from a range of clients, including individuals, groups and companies. The solicitor will advise such clients on courses of legal action relevant to their circumstances. The responsibilities of solicitors will vary dependent on their law firm or position within a legal department, while general duties may include:

●     Defending clients.

●     Researching various legal practices.

●     Instructing Barristers on cases that go to court.

●     Assisting trainee solicitors.

●     Keeping up-to-date with developments in the law.

●     Forming and maintaining relationships with a law firm’s clients.

●     Simplifying complex legal subjects to be understood by non-professionals.

●     Researching cases of interest.

Contracts And Sponsorships

Experience of working with sports contracts is important for any sports solicitor, and at Blacks Legal LTD our team have more than 30 years of experience in the field. We can listen to your requests and construct a customised plan suited to your needs, as well as check the details of any prepared contracts and ensure that you’re in the best position possible when negotiating.

Sports solicitors will need to represent clients from a range of organisations and disciplines, working with huge football clubs all the way down to grass-roots clubs. We have a varied pool of current and former clients, meaning that we always have the professionals most suitable for your situation. In addition to representing a number of sponsorship companies, we have experience of working with top sporting brands, ranging from nutritional companies to apparel providers.
