The sports sector is very dynamic. An industry in which developments follow each other at a rapid pace and in which large (commercial) interests often play a role. It is therefore very nice to have an experienced legal partner in your team.

Sports law deals with various legal subjects and issues. The members of our Sport industry team have many years of experience in this industry: not only in their capacity as lawyers, but also as top athletes themselves. We advise and litigate on various sports law topics such as:

  • license agreements and regulations
  • sports-related employment matters
  • liability
  • player and (sponsor) contracts
  • disciplinary law
  • arbitration
  • portrait right
  • privacy
  • the supervision of transfers
  • (the organization of) sports events

Legal advice
Whether it concerns recreational sports or top sport, from clubs/associations to sports associations and from individual (top) athletes to (commercial) sports teams: our lawyers assist you by providing you with legal advice. For example, we are the house lawyer of a BVO and we assist a professional international cycling team. We are also a member of BrabantSport, which aims to make Brabant stronger through sport.

While one uses a tennis racket, football or hockey stick, the other uses a mouse, keyboard or controller. In addition to assisting physical athletes, we also have a lot of experience in the field of electronic sports, or esports. The esports industry is growing fast and has acquired a clear position of its own. With this professionalization and the growing reach, the interests are increasing. So is the demand for legal services. Because our Sports sector  team works closely with the lawyers of our Gaming sector team, we have in-house experts who are at home in both areas. 

In addition we pay a lot of attention to sports within our office. For example, we organize weekly boot camps for our colleagues and ensure that our cyclists can exercise in professional clothing. Furthermore we show our involvement through a sponsorship at a BVO and many local sports clubs. Finally, as a partner we are closely associated with two large-scale annual running events in Breda and 's-Hertogenbosch, in which we participate with a large number of colleagues and relations.
