Sports and Entertainment

Comprehensive advisory services for sports professionals and entities, covering all legal issues relating to the sports world.

We organize our teams based on clients' legal needs and sports disciplines, advising on tax matters; contractual issues; remuneration schemes; the sale of clubs and sports organizations, and their corporate and debt financing; as well as representing and defending clients in sports litigation and arbitration.

We also negotiate all types of sponsorship agreements for sports professionals and clubs, championship promoters, and sports federations, covering the negotiation, renewal and termination phases, and contractual and tax aspects, including agreements that, by their nature, involve international issues and crossborder investments.

We regularly advise leading national and international sports professionals, clubs, entities and organizations from a wide range of sports disciplines, including football, basketball, motor racing, tennis and cycling. We have an active role providing multidisciplinary and international advice to F1 drivers and motorcycle racers, as well as to motor-racing teams from different categories.

We have participated in some of the recent contract signings and renewals that made a big media impact, and in high-profile court proceedings involving reputed sports professionals. We have also participated in negotiations between international federations and private promoters to organize and carry out international sports events.

We are experts in advising sports events sponsors, organizers and promoters, as well as bodies and public authorities.

Efficiency, clarity and capacity to solve any issues quickly during the negotiation.
