Agent Representation Agreements
Blackstone Solicitors provides legal advice on matters relating to Agent Representation Agreements across a variety of sports.
An agent representation agreement is an important document since it not only regulates the entire relationship between the agent and the player and/or club, but a properly negotiated and designed representation contract is also crucial for preventing litigation.
The typical club and player representation agreement covers only a blank field for the parties to indicate the agent’s services. When concluding a representation agreement, parties that do not seek legal counsel invariably supply broad and basic information about agent services such as “sporting negotiation services.”
In addition to precisely detailing the services that the agent will carry out on behalf of a player and/or a club, the representation agreement should also outline the parties’ respective obligations.
We can provide all the expert legal assistance you need in negotiating agent representation agreements and have considerable experience in this area of law.
We place huge emphasis on getting things done properly and efficiently. This is especially true when providing legal advice concerning agent representation agreements and any possible disputes that may occur with the contract. We will comprehensively ensure all the necessary provisions for each party are properly set out, fulfilling every aim and objective.
Regardless of the value of the contract or the size or nature of the club, our solicitors have the experience and specialist knowledge to help you achieve an outcome that is both fair and beneficial. We will take the time to make sure you fully understand the agreement and its objectives, as well as what is expected of each party to the contract.
