Simon Leaf in CityAM discussing what to expect from sport in 2020

Posted on 07 January 2020

Sport and Technology Lawyer Simon Leaf has been featured in City AM's round up of predictions for the sporting world in 2020.

Simon's prediction was that image rights and intermediary payments would continue to be a big issue going forward.

"Agents have attracted greater scrutiny from HMRC in their handling of their players’ image rights and this is set to continue in 2020.

"Alongside this, we are likely to see stricter rules on intermediary payments in football, with a cap on the amount that agents can charge in a negotiation, and potentially even the end of dual representation, in which agents effectively act for both club and player in a deal."
