Sports law

Anyone who practices a sport does so primarily out of passion – passion for the sport, for the people and for the club. But sports nevertheless involve major interests and the consequences can also be significant if the organization falls short.

 At a professional level this is obvious, but sponsorship contracts, employment contracts, liability, disciplinary cases and doping, for instance, are also serious issues for amateur clubs.
