Whether our clients are individual athletes, sports federations, professional sports leagues, sports authorities or sports clubs, our expertise in many areas of sports law provides them with effective representation.
The broad scope of our activities range from general advisory work right through to handling disputes between federations, athletes and clubs. We have proven expertise with sports arbitration and litigation before the courts and arbitral tribunals, where we regularly deal with matters relating to the transfer of players, their eligibility to play official matches, license procedures of sports clubs, and the implementation of anti-discriminatory rules.
We have equally been involved in the drafting and setting-up of contracts for professional athletes and articles of association for clubs. Our sports law team possesses a substantive knowledge of the national, European and international (FIFA and UEFA) football regulations.
In addition to this expertise, we also advise on issues regarding all legal aspects of sports events, image and broadcasting rights, and the project development of major stadiums.
Seamlessly integrated with other practice areas and working in close cooperation with top-tier firms in other jurisdictions around the world, we have a strong track record in helping clients achieve their objectives.
