Sports Law

As well as 25 years in commercial law and litigation, Marcus is regarded as one of Perth's leading sports lawyers according to 'The West Australian newspaper 5 June 2018'.

Marcus has represented AFL and WAFL football players, coaches and clubs in a range of sports law matters for 25 years including court cases, disciplinary hearings, contract negotiations and disputes and general legal advice and representation.

He has acted as Chairman of a committee of review into AFL reforms in Western Australia and advises sporting clubs on constitutions and negligence issues.  He has also represented A-League soccer players as well as representing clients in cricket and horse racing.

We look after all elements of Sports law, including:-

  • Legal advice on contracts;

  • Contract negotiations;

  • Representation and legal advice on disputes, hearings, appeals, disputes with associations and suspensions;

  • Disciplinary hearings;

  • Legal advice on all legal issues relating to sports law.

    Because our offices are not located in the CBD our rates are substantially lower, often up to 20% lower, than most commercial law firms.
