I provide full range of legal services, both contentious and non-contentious in the sports field. These include the drafting of employment, service and image agreements, transfers of athletes, contract negotiation and litigation, as well as the handling of disciplinary cases, especially doping cases. I am a highly experienced litigator in sports cases especially at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

I also have considerable experience in appealing CAS decisions to the Swiss Federal Supreme Court and to the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

I advise in various areas of sport law, especially in contract law and I represent team owners, but especially individual athletes and sports organizations at the highest level in such sports as football, horse racing, cycling, ice hockey, tennis, beach volleyball, gymnastics, motor racing etc.

I also look after athletes’ personal needs. I handle contract negotiations, asset planning and wealth management, the commercialization of an athlete’s image, personal sponsoring, residence and work permits, as well as tax issues.
