Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution, including mediation, litigation and arbitration, for Belgian and international clubs, federations, organisations and athletes.

Clients require advice on conflict avoidance, pre-litigation/arbitration strategic counselling, and settlement through negotiations or mediation. The focus is on providing a practical, cost-effective and commercially-viable solution. If a settlement cannot be agreed, then the ATFIELD network member firms and their lawyers assertively defend your interests before the courts.

The lawyers of our member firms are qualified to appear before all Belgian courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union. Respective lawyers have been involved in high-profile and complex cases before both state courts, sports governing body commissions and committees and sports arbitration bodies alike, including extensive experience in working before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.

Their expertise and international network enables the ATFIELD network member firms and their lawyers to deal with complex and international disputes efficiently and successfully.
