Sports and Media solicitor

We are currently assisting a top quality sports and media law team with the recruitment of a sports and media solicitor into their team in Manchester. They are looking for a personable, hard-working solicitor with excellent people skills, strong academics and a keen interest in sport and media.

The role is to become an integral member of their hugely successful team handling a wide range of matters for the world's leading sports organisations, associations, clubs, players, athletes and agents. You will be involved in the leading work available in the market and as such will be advising on matters with an international dimension. You will often be offering advice on the most high profile and complex matters in world sport and as such each day will present a new and exciting challenge.

You will not only be advising on commercial contracts (although that will certainly form part of your role) but will also be involved with regulatory, immigration, media, merchandising and sponsorship work as well as being involved in a range of contentious matters. As this is a broad role with a good deal of variety we can consider applications from a variety of backgrounds and as such can consider those coming from both a contentious and non contentious background.

What is absolutely key to this hire is the ability to demonstrate excellent training, at a regional, national or international firm and top class academics. You are joining a team which is full of top quality lawyers operating at the top of their game and you should have the personality, ability and ambition to match.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a lawyer looking to deal with great quality work, at a leading firm working with world-class lawyers. They are prepared to offer an attractive salary package, with very good prospects of advancement for any suitable applicant.
