Sports Law

Thanks to significant experience of sports law cases at the highest level, the Studio Legale Bongiorno is able to provide assistance in this specific sector to companies, club members, shareholders and managers.


Recently the firm has defended top Serie A football championship clubs, famous footballers and professional trainers for breaches of the Sports Law (betting, sport crimes, involvement in an organisation for the purpose of committing unlawful acts, etc.) before the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) National Disciplinary Board, the Court of Federal Justice and the National Sport Arbitration Tribunal (TNAS) at the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI).


Giulia Bongiorno has also held top posts in bodies and companies (in 2006 she was appointed legal advisor at CONI; from October 26, 2012 to June 2, 2018 she was a member of the Board of Directors of Juventus Football Club S.p.A. as supervisor of the Legal Department).
