We are an innovative legal business.
Many National Governing Bodies for sport in Ireland have transformed in the last decade from mainly volunteer led to executive run organisations. That prolific change has prompted changes in governance, incorporation, board composition, regulatory and disciplinary codes, anti-doping child protection, membership benefits and commercial realities, to name a few. NGB’s require trusted and experienced legal advisors to ensure they can provide the platform for future success. Leman Solicitors are that partner, representing over half of all NGB’s in Ireland and the official legal partner to the Federation of Irish Sport.
