The legal aspects of running Members Clubs and Sports and Social Clubs are often highly complex. Many people involved in running Clubs do so in their spare time, which they give up willingly for the good of the Club.

However, the improper handling of staff complaints, contractual disputes or other actions can lead to personal liability of members and committees – all this for a position which is often unpaid.

Social Club Law

Social Club Law is a highly specialised area. Sydney Mitchell acts for Clubs all over the country dealing with various day to day issues that affect the running of the Clubs.

Many areas of the law as it affects Social Clubs can be handled at these offices. We frequently receive enquiries from Clubs all over the country.

The primary areas we advise on are:
  • Club legal structure, formations, reorganisations and dissolutions
  • Club constitutions and rules 
  • Officer appointments and responsibilities
  • Membership and member disputes
  • Contractual and supplier disputes
  • Entertainment and copyright collecting societies  e.g. PPL PRS music licences
