We are one of the few firms in France able to address all topics and issues related to the sport sector.

One of the key factors of the firm’s success lies within its integrated approach: we do not have a structured department-based organization like many other large business law firms. We approach each mission on a project mode and a case-by-case basis teaming up the relevant experts in the relevant legal fields that are required to fulfil the mission within our group of 120+ lawyers and paralegals.

Therefore, our experts routinely work with experts in other fields such as, for instance, Tax; Public, Compliance, Corporate, IP lawyers.

The other key factor is that many of our lawyers have already worked for key players in the sports sector such as national or international authorities, ministries, or private players. As example, Jean-François Vilotte one of our partner was CEO of the French Tennis Federation during three years before to join us in early May 2021. These professional experiences allow us to have an operational knowledge of this sector and of our clients' expectations.

These two strengths allow us to offer our clients a complete response to their needs in both advisory and litigation matters.
