Negotiation and Conclusion of Contracts for Athletes and Coaches

In the world of sport, there are numerous examples of the severe financial repercussions of badly drafted contracts and how they can ultimately damage the careers of professional athletes.

It is crucial that contracts are negotiated and concluded on the basis of independent legal know-how and advice. Unfortunately, this is often not the case in the world of sport.

We are highly familiar with the problems associated with the negotiation of contracts and have many years of experience as negotiators, and with negotiation techniques and the conclusion of contracts worth millions for Danish and international players. We are also experienced tax advisers.

We know how important it is for the wording of contracts to be clear, unambiguous and forward-looking. Specifically, for example, we know everything there is to know about the problems relating to pay and employee benefits, including the use of extensive bonus schemes and employee benefits which may mean that, in the event of injury or sporting underachievement, athletes earn far less than they expected.

At TVC Law Firm, we provide peace of mind, overview and bargaining power in connection with contract negotiations, creating the necessary balance around the negotiating table.

 Our advisory services cover, for example:

  • Negotiation of contracts
  • Terms of pay and employment
  • Taxation

  • Competition conditions
  • Compensation and damages
