Contractual arrangements and disputes: sponsorship (event, broadcast and otherwise), endorsement agreements, event management agreements, event broadcast production and sales (television, radio and new media), the protection and exploitation of commercial rights in sport, licenses for the use of sporting imagery, and terms of business for suppliers of sports goods and services,
