About

Mohit is a Partner and Head of the Sports & Entertainment Team at Mackrell.Solicitors, advising and representing a variety of sporting clients within the industry. He provides comprehensive advice on commercial and intellectual property matters in sport.

Mohit works closely with his colleagues in other departments, ensuring that his clients always receive the full, holistic advice they so require whatever their issues may be. His diverse background in different areas of the law has also allowed him to bring together a level of knowledge of ancillary issues or necessary follow-on advice in order to secure the protection of his clients and their businesses/brands.

This approach is valued highly by his clients, among which include professional sport clubs, commercial sponsors, sports agents and individual sporting professionals with a particular focus on football, boxing, mixed-martial arts and motor-racing.

Mohit advises on all sector-focused matters pertinent and applicable to sports, including: sponsorship and endorsement agreements, commercial partnerships, kit-supply contracts and player-agent representation agreements.

Mohit also places a significant focus on the continuing need for better education of athletes within various sports, and often cites the fact most athletes do not necessarily receive professional advice (or have access to advisors who have sport-sector expertise).
