Hill Dicks scores court victory for Wayne Rooney in contract dispute
Hill Dickinson has helped Wayne Rooney to a court victory in the footballer's dispute with his former agents over commission payments. Rooney signed an eight-year image rights agreement with Proactive Sports Management in 2003 when he was just 17 that entitled the agency to 20% of all of his sponsorship contracts. He split from the company in 2008, after which he was represented solely by former Proactive employee Paul Stretford, leading the agency to claim £8.1m in unpaid commission, a sum which was later revised to £4.5m.
