Sports Disputes

We provide comprehensive legal support across the sports industry, assisting clients with a wide range of matters including regulatory and disciplinary issues, sponsorship, broadcasting rights exploitation and arbitration. We represent a diverse clientele, including sponsors, television broadcasters, gaming and wagering companies, governing bodies, sports associations, teams, and individual athletes. Our aim is to ensure that our clients navigate the legal landscape of sports with confidence and success. In addition, we serve as arbitrators in CAS arbitration proceedings.

Our approach to sports disputes

Our foremost goal is to assist our clients in achieving their strategic goals efficiently, and with a commercial focus. We understand that preventing disputes from arising is often the most advantageous approach for our clients. Nevertheless, we do not shy away from pursuing a matter to the end – relentlessly.

Recognizing the uniqueness of each dispute, we craft a flexible strategy tailored to the specific case, drawing on our extensive knowledge and experience to devise innovative solutions.

Our teams are designed to be effective and lean, with our partners actively involved at every stage, ensuring our clients receive top-tier service. We are convinced that it is the quality of advice and advocacy, not the volume of lawyer hours, that makes the difference in complex disputes.

We are independent and conflict-free

As an independent law firm based in Switzerland, we have the liberty to collaborate with any advisor globally and serve as the central coordinator for all legal representatives involved in a strategy that spans multiple jurisdictions. Our lack of affiliation with any international networks or global offices allows us to partner with the most suitable lawyers for each specific dispute and work alongside our clients' existing advisors worldwide.

Our firm's independence and focus solely on dispute resolution enable us to take on cases that many other firms cannot, due to conflicts of interest. We are a preferred firm for conflict referral work, trusted by some of the world's largest law firms to protect their clients' interests. This trust cements our status as premier specialists in sports disputes.

Further, our independent status allows our lawyers to sit as arbitrators in CAS or any other sports related arbitration proceedings.
