Service Overview

The Sports Law practice is led by Managing Partner, Shane O’Neill, a former Limerick and Na Piarsaigh hurler.

Our Sports Law team has successfully represented some of Limerick and the Mid-West’s best known sports clubs, organisations and players. We have acted in disciplinary proceedings and also provide ongoing sports law advice to our many clients.

Our clients benefit not just from the practice’s in-depth knowledge of sports law but also from the input of our specialist Licensing and Employment law teams.
