TWO-DAY PRACTICAL AND INTERACTIVE SEMINAR, 12 & 13 April 2010, London
Legal and tax treatment of sports image rights agreements: a practical interactive seminar

The Seminar will also cover the use of offshore facilities and the structuring of the necessary arrangements to secure these benefits, as well as the drafting of the corresponding agreements and other documentation.

All the speakers are experts in this field and will share their considerable know-how and experience with the delegates to this major Seminar, which will be of particular interest to sports lawyers, tax advisers, football club executives, players? agents, sports promotion and marketing companies and consultants, and corporate sponsors of sports events and sports teams and individuals.
