Emerging talent

World-class athletes, their agents and their management teams have been working with us for decades. From Formula 1 to tennis, football to athletics and sailing to cricket, we help our clients develop their careers, consolidate their successes and protect their earnings and reputation.

Well known as trusted advisers, the Withers team deliver exceptional service with discretion and integrity. We have an unrivalled understanding of the sports industry in its international dimension and a level of legal and business insight that keeps on achieving winning results for our clients.

The experience we have gained enables us to support you from day one on issues such as protecting your brand, dealing with visa issues, tax advice, vetting sponsorship deals and developing your unique talents to helping you expand your career locally and internationally.

Supporting emerging talent

We recognise the enormous personal and financial investments sportsmen and sportswomen, and their families, make in developing their careers. We can design a tailored support package that’s affordable today and flexible enough to grow with you as your requirements evolve over time. Your ‘emerging talent’ service brings you Withers’ leading sports sector experience and global network of contacts, at a price that makes sense. As your career grows, new business opportunities arise and financial decisions become more complex, we’ll be by your side with advice that may make all the difference. Our emerging talent services incorporate the following:

  • building and protecting a person's brand, image and intellectual property rights
  • reputation management and privacy
  • visa and work permits
  • leasing or purchasing a home
  • insurance
  • tax and estate planning
  • pre-nuptial agreement
  • mentoring and career planning services
  • arranging introductions to key industry personnel
  • non-disclosure agreements, sponsorship, endorsement and management agreements

What can you expect from us?

We’ll take time to get to know you, to understand your motivations, your immediate requirements and your long-term goals. And we’ll make sure we grow our services for you at the right speed – from early stage support, guidance and mentoring at the start, through to the whole breadth of services and contacts you’ll need as your career gathers momentum.

We’re passionate about sharing our in-depth sector knowledge and our legal experience with the next generation of outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen, particularly those who need help in realising their full potential.

At every stage of your career, the early identification and resolution of legal issues will be critical to the development of your brand and your business potential. As you become more successful, you’ll need to make choices to protect and enhance the financial rewards that come with success in any sport. Because we’re used to working in teams with other professionals, we’ll be there to complement the services of agents, managers and other advisers, ensuring that the decisions you take are legally watertight, every step of the way.
