Many of you will wonder what this sports law is, and why Balms Abogados has decided its services to this specialised branch of law.
Well, we could define Sports Law as the set of legal norms of public, private and social law that regulate the conduct of man in relation to the organisation and practice of sport, as well as the subjects that are linked to it - structure and organisation - and which, in addition, give rise to and determine the scope and content of the legal-sports relations that arise between people in society.
Why do we consider it necessary to open a Sports Law Department at Balms Abogados?
Well, we must not ignore that, in recent years, Spanish sport has reaped historical successes in different sports disciplines, mainly in the world of football, basketball or tennis. This boom in Spanish sport, its professionalisation, together with the emergence of e-Sports, is driving the growth of sports law and the need for different sports agents for sports advice.
Therefore, in a country where sport is increasingly present in society, athletes, clubs, sponsors and federations need comprehensive legal advice. In this context, we understand that a prestigious firm such as Balms Abogados, and one of the most important international networks of lawyers such as Balms Group International, cannot remain indifferent to a new need for legal advice demanded by society, to respond with the standards of excellence that only from our organisation we know how to offer to our clients. For all these reasons, we begin to recount the services offered by the Sports Law Department:
The new Sports Law Department will be headed by Adrián Castro, who has specialised training in this branch of Law, specifically, he attended the International Sports Law Master-LLM of the University of INEFC Lleida. Within his training, he specialised in issues related to football, FIFA rules, the national and international federation regime, soccer player transfers, issues related to soccer players' contracts and the disciplinary regime. In recent years, he has conducted several studies on the international transfer of minors and the problems of their registration following FIFA regulations.
Besides, from Balms Abogados we do not close the world of sports to football since the need for advice is increasingly widespread in minority sports that are gradually growing exponentially.
Ultimately, we hope that from these lines we were able to bring you what is sports law, and new services from Balms Abogados we offer all our customers.
