Sports lawyer

Clubs, sponsors, marketing bureaux, investors, agencies and other service providers in the world of professional sport enter into special contracts which are tailored to take into account the special features of sport – the impact of sports association law, the fast-moving nature of employment as a professional sportsman and the character of sport as a seasonal and competitive business.

Clubs and sports associations work with standard employment contracts in all leagues. These often fail to satisfy the requirements created by the current rulings of the German federal employment court or employment law legislation. We review standard contracts and are always available for the clubs and sports associations should they wish to improve them.
