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 in both Western Australia and Victoria.

He has acted as Chairman of a committee of review into the operations of the West Australian Football Commission and 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 personal, club and administrative organizational legal issues relating to sports law.

Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.
