Since its inception in 2007, Layth has been the Managing Partner of Lucentem Sports & Entertainment Law, a firm that represents and advises musical artists, athletes, coaches and organizations in business and legal matters. I also manage our firm’s crisis management group, which provides direct crisis communication, support and trial advocacy for high profile individuals and corporations facing criminal and regulatory charges throughout Canada.

In addition to helping clients, Lucentem has evolved to become one of the leading television and media commentators on sports law in Canada. We are often called upon by various media sources to discuss international legal issues within sport, as well as provide analysis from a Canadian perspective. We are also a source that international organizations turn to when Canadian sport and entertainment expertise is required. I also regularly lecture at leading universities throughout Canada and the United States in the area of comparative American and Canadian sport law.
