Sports Law

Sports law is a broad field that touches on several areas of law. The parties involved and their legal concerns are also very diverse. We have many years of experience in all aspects of sport.

We advise clubs, athletes, sponsors, organisers, as well as amateur and hobby athletes in the context of sports accidents.

For example, we have provided legal support for several major sporting events, from the drafting of sponsorship contracts, the preparation of conditions of participation and liability declarations to the tendering procedures for security services at major events.

We also advise sports clubs in association law matters and support athletes who have been victims of a sports accident in enforcing their rights. Especially in the field of skiing law, we have been active and successful for decades.

Our clients also include sports and professional associations, such as the Tyrolean Ski Instructors Association. Our advice to them covers all questions of professional and sports practice law, for example European law questions regarding the cross-border recognition of diplomas.

Our lawyers involved in sports law are themselves passionate sports enthusiasts and practise a wide variety of sports.
