Rebecca McCarthyLoosemores Solicitors

Displaying a ‘genuine commitment, passion for, and interest in Wales, the culture and sport‘, Loosemores Solicitors has developed an impressively strong client base in the sector, including among many national sporting bodies/organisations. Much of the success for the firm’s prominence in the space is down to the skills and leadership of senior partner Mark Loosemore, whose ‘specialist experience in sport and media work is highly valued across the sector’. Although he is involved at the sharp end of much of the key commercial work handled by the firm, Loosemore is perhaps best-known for his continued representation of the Football of Association of Wales across a range of matters including drafting and negotiating sponsorship and licensing contracts and media rights agreements. Other key practitioners include associate Rebecca McCarthy, who leverages her ‘in-depth knowledge of charity law‘ to good effect, including on governance issues; ‘very committed and hardworking‘ litigator Karl Thomas, who is regularly involved in significant sports disciplinary cases and regulatory disputes; and Siôn Tudur, who will ‘go the extra mile for clients‘ engaged in corporate and commercial work in the sector.

Benefiting from ‘in-depth experience and knowledge’ of the commercial and governance requirements of a myriad charities/not-for-profit organisations, the ‘proactive and responsive‘ team at Loosemores Solicitors has an excellent reputation in the Welsh market, particularly among sporting organisations. Although it is also able to draw upon the wider resources of employment and corporate lawyers at the firm, should the need arise, clients are particularly appreciative of ‘standout‘ team head Rebecca McCarthy, who is one of the few charity law specialists in Wales, and is therefore very well-equipped to advise on incorporation and governance issues specific to charities.
