sports law

We are consultants in sports law who understand business. We are proud of our reputation as one of the leading sports law firms in Germany. Our clients include federal and regional sports associations and clubs, Bundesliga teams in a variety of sports (including football), (national) coaches, Professional Cycling Teams (i.a. WorldTour-Team), team members and individual athletes as well as major sponsors and marketing agencies throughout Germany and abroad. We are also able to handle international sports briefs through our network and we represent our clients – sports associations as well as athletes and clubs – at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.

As sport becomes increasingly commercial and professional, so legal issues in the day-to-day practice of sport assume rising significance. For those actively engaged in it, i.e. sports businesses, associations, clubs, athletes, coaches, sponsors and sports agencies, it is becoming ever more difficult to protect and enforce rights and interests from their own resources.

A particular feature of sports law is the interaction – and frequently also the collision – between state law and the rules and regulations of national and international sports associations. As specialists in sports law, we can offer concrete help in this regard, whether in drafting contracts, in the marketing and sponsorship of sports teams, individual athletes, sports associations, clubs and sporting events, or in doping procedures, disputes under employment and other association law or – perhaps alongside these – the preparation of expert reports on issues of sports law. Profit from the expertise and experience of our sports law Team.
