Droit du sport

Notre équipe en droit du sport, particulièrement reconnue pour son expertise, conseille les principales fédérations et ligues sportives, tant françaises qu’internationales.

Nous intervenons en matière de vente des droits médias, sponsoring et betting, notamment par le biais d’appel à candidatures, la gestion de l’organisation en France d’évènements sportifs internationaux ainsi que dans la rédaction et la négociation des divers contrats y afférents (contrats médias, sponsoring, merchandising, sécurité, etc).

Notre équipe est également reconnue pour sa gestion des contentieux devant les instances sportives et judiciaires, et tout particulièrement ceux liés au piratage et à l’ambush marketing.

Nous accompagnons également les agents sportifs et les joueurs dans la gestion de leur carrière (contrat de travail, transfert, contrat de droit à l’image, contrat équipementier) et dans la défense et la protection de leurs droits devant les instances sportives et disciplinaires.

Notre équipe est aussi amenée à intervenir dans des opérations de rapprochement ou de cession de diverses entreprises liées à l’industrie du sport (réforme territoriale, clubs, agents commerciaux, sociétés d’intermédiation).
