With leading litigators we argue cases in all Danish courts, conduct arbitration proceedings at national and international levels, and represent clients in cases before specialist bodies and tribunals within the world of sports.
We have considerable expertise in the area of sports law, i.a. assisting professional athletes on legal issues relating to their career, including:
- Terms of employment
- Protection of rights to their own names and photos, sponsor agreements, doping rules, etc.
We also provide advice to businesses before they enter into sponsor and advertising agreements, and we furthermore provide advice and assist in relation to purchasing and selling sports businesses, including purchase and sale of sports clubs, sponsor companies etc.

In 2008, Aarhus-based Jan Hvarre became a partner and Jette Hessellund Lauridsen and Pia Voldmester became associated partners. The team was strengthened by copyright specialist Martin Kyst’s arrival from the Danish Ministry of Culture. The firm is particularly strong in sports law representing the Danish Handball Players Association, the Danish Athlete’s Association and football’s Danish Players Association. The firm represents book publisher Gyldendal, the Danish Publishers Association and the Danish Association of Daily Newspapers". (Europe Legal 500).
