26 July 2018

BonelliErede’s lawyers specialising in sports law have combined their forces to officially establish a dedicated Focus Team.

The firm’s path to innovation continues with the formal announcement of a team of professionals from various practices, who have assisted athletes, sports clubs, investors, sponsors, institutions and companies involved in cases of sports law over the years.

The Sports Law Focus Team’s activities will concentrate on professional athletes’ transfer agreements and contracts; legal advisory before national and international courts of arbitration and other judicial institutions; tax assistance; relationships with agents; management of intellectual property, TV and image rights; sponsorship and advertising contracts.

The Focus Team is led by partner Marco Maniscalco and comprises partners Francesco Anglani, Giovanni Guglielmetti, Mario Olivieri, Riccardo Ubaldini, Enrico Vaccaro and Gianfranco Veneziano, as well as a large group of BonelliErede associates. The team brings together professionals from different departments, all sharing the same experience and passion for sports law.

“Right from the start, I believed in the establishment of a Focus Team entirely dedicated to this sector and have committed myself with great enthusiasm in the carrying out of this project, driven also by my personal passion for the world of sports” commented co-managing partner Marcello Giustiniani.

“This new Focus Team – commented co-managing partner Stefano Simontacchi – brings together cross-functional skills with the aim of ensuring an increasing synergy between our different practice areas. BonelliErede has always closely monitored the dynamics affecting this sector both in Italy and abroad and we intend to consolidate this position with the establishment of a dedicated focus team”.
