Blaney McMurtry is one of the leading sports law firms in Canada. Its clients include not only numerous sports organizations but also various individual athletes, both professional and amateur, and span numerous sports such as hockey, baseball, football, track and field and others.
Our sports law practitioners have acted as counsel for, and as Directors of, the Greater Toronto Hockey League and the Ontario Hockey Federation. Their work has included mediating many of the contentious issues which had created turmoil in Minor Hockey in southern Ontario. We have represented the Canadian Hockey Association and the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation and won a landmark case in the Federal Court of Appeal which saved amateur sports organizations across Canada millions of dollars in improperly assessed GST. Our sports lawyers are well experienced in representing both individuals and organizations in negotiations, in administrative hearings and in trial and appellate litigation.
Due to their depth of knowledge in the field, our sports law practitioners are often asked to appear on radio and television, and in print media, with respect to sports-related issues.
