Lawrence Stephens launches Sports & Entertainment Department

August 2023

Following the launch of Lawrence Stephens’ brand new Sports & Entertainment department, Senior Director Steven Bernstein, Director Mohit Pasricha, Senior Associate Jake Cohen and Associate William Bowyer spoke to Law360 about expansion, growth and providing a full-service approach to clients.

The team’s comments were published in Law360, 8 August 2023, and can be found here.

Discussing the firm’s recent growth, Steven explained that Lawrence Stephens’ recent expansion has allowed the firm to move towards a full-service model, with each practice allowing for cross-referral to better service and expand its client base.

The appointment of the Sports & Entertainment team, following the arrival of new Banking, Employment and Regulatory Solutions departments, has been a crucial part of the firm’s growth.

Commenting on building a practice, Mohit explained “I learned very early on that you need to do really good work and get known for your work, and with time it will grow organically.”

Mohit stated that the decision to join the firm was “a no-brainer” because of the firm’s wide range of practice areas and full-service approach, a huge benefit to the team’s client base of individual athletes and entertainers who may require a range of legal services ranging from real estate to employment.

“We’re very fortunate as a team to have built up a bank of really good clients,” Mohit said. “The opportunity came to join Lawrence Stephens and take forward what we have built, not just in terms of growing the client base, but in terms of extending the service that we were providing previously.”

The team’s appointment was also covered in the Law Society Gazette, New Law Journal and eprivateclient.
