Job Description

Head of Legal – International Sports Body – Switzerland


We are working exclusively with an international sports federation who are growing quickly and now seek to hire a Head of Legal to be based in Geneva, Switzerland.


The role will require drafting and negotiating commercial contracts in relation to sports marketing and events. You would be involved in a broad range of matters including licensing of sponsorship, marketing and association rights, anti-trust law, corporate transactions, and international business law. This role involves management of a legal counsel in the team, as well as supporting the Commercial Legal Director in various projects.


This is a rare opportunity to join a world-leading organisation, working at the forefront of the sports industry in a varied and challenging role.


The successful candidate will be qualified solicitor in either Switzerland and/or England, with excellent training from a top International or UK law firm and relevant in-house experience gained in the sports industry. Motorsports would be particularly advantageous. You will be working across English and Swiss regulations, so professional level French would be a highly desirable. The role would be well suited to a 10-12 PQE lawyer, who thrives in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.



Candidates with exceptional experience outside of these perimeters may still apply.


Due to the high volume of applications we receive for each of our roles we are unable to respond on an individual basis. If you have not received a response within 2 weeks of having submitted your details, it is likely that your application has not been successful on this occasion.
