Sports and law

A passion for sport

Our lawyers have played sports themselves at all levels, so they know exactly what your situation calls for. They can empathise, know the procedures and have experience and a large network in the sports world. Our team of sports lawyers is at your service day and night, because top-level sport demands it.

In the sports world, financial interests play an increasingly important role and, partly as a result, legal assistance and advice to people involved in sport is becoming increasingly important. Our sports lawyers advise athletes, sports associations and professional sports companies on legal issues or on resolving business conflicts.
