Dominic McGinn, a specialist lawyer who has developed a niche practice in sports law and is a recognised expert in all aspects of dispute resolution, has joined national, new-model law firm Excello Law. Dominic headed up the sports law team at his previous firm.
Dominic represents a range of clients including premier league footballers, football agents, football clubs, individuals, small and medium sized businesses, property developers and property agents.
He has over 20 years’ experience in dispute resolution, and has been recommended by the Legal 500 for sports law and dispute resolution in the North West.
Dominic regularly advises on complex contractual disputes, professional negligence claims, finance actions, privacy and media law, property related litigation and is experienced in all types of mediation.
Notably he acted on behalf of fitness instructor Sarah Watson against Manchester United footballer Marcos Rojo which led to the super injunction banning his identity being lifted.
He works closely with a renowned Spanish football lawyer and is exclusively retained for all legal work in this country by football agencies registered in the UK who operate in Portugal, Spain, Argentina, Turkey, Emirates, Nigeria and Ghana.
On his move to Excello Law, Dominic commented: “I am delighted to have joined award winning Excello which is a very progressive law firm with fantastic lawyers across the board. I can now offer my clients flexible and innovative fee structures to suit them. They recognise that this move will benefit them from both a financial and client care stand point.”
George Bisnought, managing director of Excello Law, said: “Dominic is arguably one of the UK’s leading sports lawyers – the go-to lawyer for many overseas football agencies and sports lawyers requiring assistance in player moves and disputes in England – with noteworthy case wins under his belt.
“He brings an added dimension to our commercial litigation and sports teams and we are delighted he has found our innovative approach aligns with his objectives to develop his practice.”
