Sports, Gaming and Entertainment

Legal advisers in sport, gaming and entertainment need to have expert knowledge to make sure all the industry-specific conditions are considered.

Vinge has extensive experience of the circumstances that are unique to each industry in this sector, along with leading expertise in all the relevant areas of law.

In sport, gaming and entertainment, it is particularly important to have legal control of intellectual property rights because they affect, for example, publishing agreements, production agreements, artist contracts and player contracts. The tax consequences must also be considered in transfers and licensing.
