Law firm launches new specialist sports service practice

LINCOLNSHIRE-based law firm Bridge McFarland is to create a specialist sports law service aimed at sports clubs, associations, players and athletes across the country.

The practice will be headed by partner Richard Parnell and will be able to call on lawyers with a wide variety of specialisations.

Mr Parnell said: “With the London Olympics now in full flow, sport has never enjoyed a higher profile in this country so there could be no better time to launch our new sports law service.

“Bridge McFarland has long been proud of the help we have given to local sports clubs and associations, both by acting for them and through sponsorship.”
