Sport Resolutions Annual Conference Sponsorship Announcement – Winston & Strawn LLP

Sport Resolutions is proud to announce that Winston & Strawn LLP are the naming rights sponsor for the Annual Conference in 2017, where Jeffrey L. Kessler, Winston’s co-chairman and chair of the firm’s Sports Litigation Practice, will speak during the Gender and the Level Playing Field session.

The firm has 17 offices in Brussels, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Dubai, Hong Kong, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Moscow, New York, Newark, Paris, San Francisco, Shanghai, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C.

The Sport Resolutions Annual Conference 2017 is due to return on the 4th of May 2017 with a bigger and even better production.

The Conference will once again be staged at the five-star Grange St. Paul’s London hotel, and brings together sport and law professionals to debate the big issues that create conflict and disputes in sport. 2017 themes include: Equality in Sport, Anti-Doping, and Athlete Transition.

Mr. Kessler said: “Winston is proud to sponsor this flagship event in partnership with Sport Resolutions. Our team has a long history of forging strong relationships with athletes, associations, and many other participants in the sports landscape through, among other activities, our involvement in many landmark sports industry cases.”

Peter Crowther, Winston’s London office managing partner, said the sponsorship aligned with the firm’s commitment to supporting the discussion and understanding of what causes disputes in the sports arena. Mr. Crowther added, “The Conference provides an excellent opportunity for sports and law professionals to consider alternative perspectives on the causes of disputes and, moreover, what role both can play to prevent these issues from affecting the field of play.”

“Richard Harry, Chief Executive of Sport Resolutions said: “I am delighted that Winston & Strawn is aligning itself to our flagship event. To have the support of a global law firm of the quality of Winston & Strawn is a ringing endorsement of the Sport Resolutions Annual Conference and I look forward to working together with them to make the 2017 event the best yet.”
