January’s issue of World Sports Advocate

January's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues in the sporting world.

Following its release in December, we feature an indepth article on the much anticipated second part of the McLaren Report. Claude Ramoni, Partner at Libra Law, addresses each of the potential violations identified by the McLaren team, looking in particular at the potential issues that could arise when turning information from the Report into evidence that may be used as proof of a rule violation. 

Another highlight of January's issue is an evaluation of alternative club financing models versus third party ownership regulations in football. Marc Patrick Schneider and Simon Karlin of Lentze Stopper Rechtsanwaelt consider which legal boundaries exist in this area of the sport, focusing on issues such as crowdfunding and issuance of option or convertible bonds.
