HopgoodGanim is a lead advisor to Queensland's most prominent sporting clubs and brands. In addition to our work with many of Australia's leading hospitality and sporting brands, our HG Private team expertly offer advice to high profile sporting personalities and entertainers on their various private legal matters. 

We understand the unique structure and cultural considerations for sporting and leisure organisations and appreciate that in addition to commercial considerations, there are regulatory requirements that play an important role in both establishing the appropriate structure and managing day to day operations.
