Knowledge of sports
Through their own experiences, the lawyers of Everest Sport have gathered an important insight in the world of sports as such. This helps them to approach cases from the right perspective.

A sports-related case does not always benefit from time-consuming procedures. Everest Sport aims for the most efficient solution in the best interests of its client.
Everest-Sport, the sports department within the Belgian law firm Everest, consists of a number of passionate lawyers who have outstanding knowledge of sports law as well as an exceptional interest in the world of sports.
Everest Sport offers you high quality and integral legal support and will act in both an advising and a procedural role in which a pragmatic and efficient approach is pivotal.
Everest Sport will assist you in drafting agreements or in negotiating but also, if deemed necessary, in legal proceedings.
The operating range of a sports lawyer is often presumed to be limited to supporting professional sportsmen and sports clubs in terms of negotiations and transfers. However, it goes beyond. Sportsmen, sports clubs and sports federations have nowadays evolved to real enterprises. A modern sports lawyer will therefore render services in all possible fields of law and will address all actors within the sports world, which are a lot.
This is where Everest Sport makes a difference.
Far more than an individual acting lawyer specialized in sports law, Everest Sport has the advantage to be embedded in a large and reputed law firm in Belgium.
This creates a unique cross-fertilization between the sports department and the other departments, such as the social law department and the tax law department, with which the sportsman, sports club, sports federation or sports association will come into contact.
This interaction provides the opportunity to offer complete legal support to the sportsman, sports club, sports association or even to sports events organisers.
Therefore, Everest Sport is your ideal partner to guarantee full legal services by means of a A to Z guidance. This enables you to focus on your core business, your sport.
