Sports disciplines, such as football, basketball, motor racing and tennis.

We have extensive experience and in-depth knowledge in advising athletes, clubs, federations, sports limited companies and investors, both national and international, in a wide range of sports. We also advise sponsoring companies on the negotiation, renewal and termination of sponsorship contracts.

We offer advice on tax planning, remuneration schemes and the negotiation of contracts or the exploitation of sportsmen and women's image rights.

Legal and tax advice

We advise athletes(footballers, pilots and tennis players, among others), coaches and members of the coaching staff on issues of contracting, tax planning, international taxation and optimisation of financial structures, drafting and termination of contracts. We also offer management, exploitation and protection of their image and privacy rights and advertising and sponsorship contracts.

We advise sports clubs, especially football clubs and SAD (Sports Limited Companies), on corporate matters, such as the purchase and sale of shares or capital increases, corporate and debt financing, and on tax and insolvency matters. We also advise on tax, labour and intellectual property matters in the drafting of all types of contracts, whether with players and coaching staff, television or sponsorship.

Sponsorship and image rights

Negotiation and review of contracts, among others:

  • Image exploitation or assignment contracts
  • Sponsorship contracts
  • Brand licensing contracts

  • Merchandising contracts

In relation to elite sportsmen and women, our added value is in the management of their image and reputation, building a solid perception around them and specifying the message to be transmitted.


We help investors to prepare their entry into any sporting discipline, putting at their disposal all our knowledge in Corporate Law and Venture Capital to ensure the satisfaction of all the interests at stake.

Our differential value lies in the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinarynature of our team, being able to advise you throughout the process of buying or selling companies and investments.

Our team is made up of lawyers and economists who can intervene from the beginning of the operation, analysing the different legal, tax, labour, regulatory, administrative and financial areas through the corresponding Due Diligence, and providing a detailed report on the company.
