Sports Law

Sport is part of the Kiwi psyche. From playing sport, supporting the local club or cheering for our national athletes, New Zealanders are passionate about all codes whether it’s at grassroots or professional levels.

At Gallaway Cook Allan, we understand that sport also presents its own issues when it comes to the law. Sports law affects all aspiring and professional athletes. Whether you need advice on sponsorship contracts, dispute resolution, behavioural and misconduct matters, doping hearings, employment matters or sports judicial hearings, we have an unprecedented wealth of experience to help you with your needs.

Gallaway Cook Allan has a long history in the sports law field and we are proud to be leaders in this area. Our consultant Iain Gallaway was a legendary cricket commentator and forged strong connections with Otago Cricket. We have represented the Otago Rugby Union for decades and act for most of the current All Blacks. From chasing your sporting dreams to needing help negotiating a contract, our team is happy to help you achieve your goals.
