Ken’s practice includes advising on EU legal issues related to media, entertainment and sports, and he regularly counsels clients in contentious and non-contentious matters involving the protection and exploitation of intellectual property, competition law, the sale of media rights, single supply arrangements, governance issues, disputes, EU free movement rules, and disciplinary and regulatory investigations, as well as in relation to drafting and litigating commercial agreements.
Ken served a four-year term as secretary general to the International Court of Appeal of the world motorsports regulator, the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
