Today’s global sports industry accounts for around 3 – 4% of the world’s total economic activity, and it is an industry that continues to grow.
Sports people are becoming increasingly aware of the need to obtain commercially adept legal advice in relation to their professional and personal interests. The sports law and management team at Tughans comprises a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers who act for professional sports people, clubs and governing bodies on a wide range of sports related issues such as playing contract negotiations, image rights, reputation management, regulatory/disciplinary issues, stadia development and personal endorsements.
To supplement our commercial legal service, the sports law and management department has engaged the services of Jackie Evans to act as a Sports Consultant to the firm. Jackie is a former professional player at Chelsea and his two sons, Jonathan and Corry, are current Northern Ireland internationals. Now based in Manchester, Jackie is a coach at the Manchester United Academy and holds a degree in Sports Management. His grounding and experience in the professional game allows Tughans to offer their clients the full complement of services.

Our domestic and international business links can often add value for clients in the commercial world. In short, we strive to meet the every need of the modern sports person allowing them to excel in the knowledge that their personal affairs are in safe hands.
