Competitive sport is a billion-dollar global industry due in large part to intellectual property rights and ever closer cooperation between the media, sponsors, and sports authorities. Sports law overlaps substantially with media law, labour law, contract law, competition or antitrust law, and tort law (referring to an actionable wrong). Fichte & Co has worked extensively in this complex field and can assist clients with issues covering trademarks, tradenames, copyright protection, merchandise distribution, licensing, and sale arrangements. Due to the rise of social media, the firm also increasingly deals with issues surrounding defamation.
