Sports Law

“Oh, so you make sports law – doping and so”

This is a typical dialogue, we will encounter. No, we do not doping, but we deal professionally intensively.

Doping is certainly the most spectacular, but not the most common application of sports law. Sports law is the right of the federations, but also a collective term for a variety of areas, which have a special relationship to the sport and that we encounter in our other practice first. Labour law with specific lawyer Wieschemann is focussed on football: to Lizensierungsverfahren of the sports leagues such as the Football League and the handball Bundesliga, he has worked as well as to employment and labour issues of the workers in the sport, the tax law and the questions of sponsorship.

He advises and represents associations, federations, athletes and coaches in Germany, but also in all European countries as well as Turkey, Nigeria, Mexico and the United States since 1997. In particular the change or the new position of Association statutes, but also debates about the change in the amateur leagues of football occupy. He regularly represents clients before the bodies of FIFA, as also before the CAS, advising sports associations to questions of the licensing procedure and structural changes legal Association of.

One focus is on the representation of athletes in complex doping procedures. Wieschemann Lawyer was instrumental in the proceedings before the Court of Arbitration for Sport CAS/TAS in which Russian athletes were acquitted of the accusation of participation in the violation of anti-doping rules. The procedure is essential for the reworking of the findings of the McLaren report of the allegations of Dr Rodchenkov.

Lawyer Wieschemann gives guest lectures at the Wilhelm Universität of Münster, the Ruhr University Bochum at the Chair of Criminology on international arbitration in sport, Member of the Executive Committee of the Association of sports law in the DAV and since 2008 has 2013 referee of the German Arbitration Court for sports of DIS and arbitrator at the Arbitration Court for royalty disputes the handball Bundesliga.
