Daniel Geey - The Final Score on Football Law

I work with a variety of clubs, players and agents helping and advising on takeovers, transfers, contract re-negotiations, endorsement deals, image rights agreements, reputation management, disciplinary, broadcasting and dispute issues.

I am a Partner in the Sports Group at Sheridans andcregularly provide advice on the various FA, EPL, EFL, UEFA and FIFA rules.

I’ve been lucky enough to speak at global conferences on topics like football broadcasting rights, multiple club ownership, Financial Fair Play, Agents Rules and third party ownership.

After completing my law degree with a dissertation on the Bosman ruling, I embarked on a Masters Degree in Competition Law and European Football Broadcasting Rights. Since I became a solicitor, my studies have helped me to provide advice on a number of football regulatory, disciplinary and broadcasting issues. As well as posting blog articles on this site I write for various competition, media and sports law journals.
