Withers has advised Novak Djokovic, the current Roland Garros and Australian Open champion and world number two, on the negotiation of his new sponsorship agreement with sportswear group Lacoste. The agreement follows on from a sponsorship relationship with the Uniqlo brand which commenced in 2012.
Luca Ferrari, head of Withers' Sports and Talent group, comments: 'Lacoste has had tennis at the very heart of its business since its establishment in 1933. The partnership with the brand is ideal for Novak, as one of the best known players in contemporary tennis, and they will stand together as epitomes of excellence in the sports world. As ever, we've been delighted to act for Novak on this matter and to advise him on the negotiation of the agreement.'
Withers is the standing legal adviser to Novak Djokovic, the Novak Djokovic Foundation (UK) and Novak Djokovic Foundation (USA).
