DLA Piper recently launched Sport Now – our Media, Sport and Entertainment sector global magazine – that focuses on all sports-related matters in the legal world. Sport Now collates articles from a wide variety of countries to provide you with an overview of what’s pertinent in the sector in your country and to show how this compares to sectors in other parts of the world.

As Sports Now highlights, technology has certainly changed the way we all think about and experience sports, a topic we recently discussed at a sports tech conference we co-sponsored in collaboration with the Zvi Meitar Institute for Legal Implications of Emerging Technologies and Adelson School of Entrepreneurship at IDC Herzliya and the Israeli law firm, Yigal Arnon & Co. The conference focused on innovation and global trends in sports tech and the future of sports tech. Peter White, Global Co-Chair of DLA Piper’s Media, Sport and Entertainment Sector, spoke to the audience on The Intersection of Sports and Technology and gave real-world examples of how his practice has evolved over the years along with technology in the world of sports. Over 200 people attended this fascinating event and Peter was interviewed by Calcalist Sport in an article entitled “9 things I’ve learned about large sporting transactions“.
