I am an associate in the Sports & Entertainment team at Lawrence Stephens and act for a number of clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters.
As a former athlete competing in Synchronised Swimming and Finswimming as well as a qualified Synchronised Swimming coach, I am able to bring a unique perspective to my practice. Having spent five years dealing with high-profile, multi-million-pound litigation at my previous firm, I am level-headed, tenacious and now a trusted advisor to a number of notable sporting clients in a range of sports including boxing, basketball and football.
My expertise includes advising clients across a wide range of matters, including regulatory, anti-doping, safeguarding and disciplinary matters, in addition to assisting on non-contentious matters including takeovers and acquisitions of sports clubs and commercial agreements.
“Angélique has been amazing on this fight (and the first fight with Liam Smith in January) – she’s quick, always on the ball and available when I need her. I look forward to continuing working with Angélique and I also anticipate a successful future with Nova Sport”
“I really appreciate the support we got from Angélique. Having a professional to explain the contract and talk me through each section allowed me to understand exactly what I was signing. That gave me the confidence I needed to just focus on my game, and it was a relief to know that all the details were correct and things are in place to allow me to be successful.”
“Angélique Richardson is also one for the future. She too fights hard for her clients and her written work is always excellent.”
