Sport Resolutions Annual Conference 2024 Sponsorship Announcement

Sport Resolutions Annual Conference 2024 Sponsorship Announcement

We are delighted to announce that Winston & Strawn LLP will continue as the naming rights sponsor for our Annual Conference 2024: ‘Setting the Pace in Debating Integrity’.

Winston & Strawn LLP has one of the world premier sports law practices. Their work has included some of the most famous legal matters in sports history including Alston v. NCAA (the case that culminated in a 9–0 Supreme Court victory for the college players against the NCAA); the US$2.15B Los Angeles Dodgers acquisition; McNeil v. the NFL (the landmark antitrust jury trial that led to the establishment of free agency in the NFL); the multi-billion-dollar construction and permanent financings for SoFi Stadium; and Morgan v. USSF (the case that led to a historic equal pay settlement for the players on the Women’s National Team). 

Winston & Strawn’s team represents leading player associations, professional athletes, player classes in antitrust and other litigation, sports ownership groups, sports event organizers, intellectual property licensees and licensors, media companies, sports agents, lenders and underwriters of team and sports facility debt, governmental entities, coaches, competing sports leagues, sponsors, and others involved in disputes in the sports industry. The firm also has a high-quality transactional capability and represents purchasers of sports teams and financiers of stadiums – including financings of some of the most cutting-edge sports facilities in the world such as Real Madrid’s 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. 

Peter Crowther, Partner at Winston & Strawn LLP said: “We are incredibly proud to partner with Sport Resolutions for the 8th year running, our partnership underlines the firm’s commitment to finding the best resolutions to sports disputes. As the world’s eyes turn to Paris for the Summer Olympic Games this year, Winston & Strawn remains at the forefront of industry-shaping litigation in sports and continues to take up the fight alongside professional athletes and player associations in the quest for integrity in sport. Ranging from equal pay for the U.S. Women’s National Team soccer players, to representing Nigerian Olympic Bobsledder Simidele Adeagbo in her gender equality fight, our disputes team is dedicated to this mission. We very much look forward to the 2024 Annual Conference which promises to bring insightful discussions around major topics in sport.
