Challenge: Preparing our clients for Russia
What we did: Before and during the tournament, we advised on and negotiated contracts, business and contractual disputes (both within the UK, Russia and elsewhere), dealt with paparazzi press harassment, online media, false stories and allegations on television, newspaper and online.
The result: …. Once the event had finished we calculated that, between us, we have worked with no fewer than 14 players who have played in FIFA World Cup Semi Finals and Finals. That’s enough talent to win the tournament. When the lawyering was done, we even got to watch some of the games.
Locations: London and Russia
