Baker McKenzie in Geneva is pleased to invite you to our upcoming two-part business briefing series in May 2019.
Planning for a professional athlete can be challenging, particularly as different stages in their career will demand vastly different considerations.
This briefing series will follow the career of international athletes from Sunday leagues in childhood through to retirement, addressing tax, wealth planning, and sport or sport related legal issues related to commercial contracts, sponsorship, image rights, cross-border transfers, investments and family matters.
Our first session will look at the first half of an athlete's career, taking them from youth academies and junior competitions through to international professional status.
Our second briefing will focus on the "tomorrow" - the end of a career, retirement and after.
We hope you will join us!
