Sports Law

The members of the Langlois Lawyers team who specialize in sports law have sound judgment and unsurpassed legal skills for achieving the objectives established in a contract negotiation or professional representation in a sports dispute. We offer strategic and legal advice for sports federations and for athletes at all levels, including conflict of interest situations, sports dispute resolution, doping, adopting procedural fairness rules or analyzing compliance with those rules, national and international selection, disciplinary actions, and carding. Our team also represents clients in contract reviews and negotiations involving athletes at all levels.

We regularly represent Canadian anti-doping authorities before the Doping Tribunal of the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada and the Doping Appeals Tribunal. We also acted as Ombudsperson for the Canadian Olympic team at the winter and summer games (Olympic, Paralympic and Pan American) in order to participate in the resolution of problems encountered by athletes, coaches or support personnel in the Canadian delegation.
