In this section

Since the introduction of the Code for Sport Governance, National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and sport organisations must deliver against specific objectives to access public funding. 

Gold standards of governance, improved gender diversity, greater transparency on strategy and financial status are amongst the necessary requirements. Additionally, they face the growing pressure to respond to societal change by addressing issues around integrity, equality and diversity, athlete welfare and safeguarding.

Our experienced multidisciplinary sport team has been supporting NGBs and sport organisations for over 30 years. 

Our expertise

Our specialist team advises on issues such as governance and constitution, workforce planning, health and safety, immigration, integrity, equality and diversity, safeguarding, contract and grant agreements. We also advise on regulatory and disciplinary matters and can provide individual representation.

We help NGBs navigate the complex issues relating to sponsorship and partnership agreements, intellectual property and image rights, broadcasting, digital media, merchandising, licensing, ticketing and reputation management.

Our team includes experts from a range of legal disciplines, allowing us to meet and anticipate your needs including charity and trust law, employment and pensions, dispute resolution, commercial contracts, property, construction and planning law.

We're committed to educating the sector and regularly provide training to in-house teams, affiliated clubs, committee members and welfare officers to support them in meeting their sport specific goals.

We’ve worked with Brabners since 2019 for our dedicated Legal & Tax helpline. Brabners has provided excellent management of the helpline, offering our LTA Registered Venues and County & Island Associations access to legal advice from an extremely knowledgeable and experienced team. During this time, Brabners provided an invaluable service throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to work with us to add value to the services the LTA provides.
