Sport and Sports Industry

An attorney can only successfully advise and be involved in the sports industry if he is familiar with the participants and especially the customs. Only someone who speaks the language of sports can be successful when concluding, for example, sponsoring or sports marketing contracts.

At Klinkert, we have provided advice for a very long time in the entire range of sports and sports law. We are regular participants in litigation and arbitration involving sports as representatives of the parties and arbitrators, above all in Switzerland (Court of an Arbitration for Sports/CAS; Basketball Arbitral Tribunal/BAT).
