Employment Contracts & Transfers

Employment Contracts & Transfers

Our lawyers have advised on some of the biggest transfers in world football, particularly those involving foreign players transferring to Premier League clubs. We are regularly instructed by a number of high profile managers to review the terms of their employment contracts. As a result, we are well positioned to provide advice to managers, players and agents / intermediaries in relation to any of the following:

  • Playing contracts
  • Managerial and coaching contracts
  • Image rights (assignments and licenses)
  • Intermediary / agent representation contracts
  • Transfer agreements, including permanent and loan documentation
  • Pre-contract and option arrangements
  • Bespoke clauses, such buy out clauses, option clauses and payment clauses
  • Compromise / settlement agreements
  • Compensation for breach of contract
  • Third party ownership compliance
  • Training compensation and solidarity payments

In addition to our work within football, we have also advised professional players, agents and clubs in Rugby League and Union on all forms of transfer activity including player contracts, compromise agreements and image rights licences.
