To promote growth, Monereo Meyer Abogados has recruited Sven Wassmer to lead the new departments of Sports Law and Aviation Law.

Wassmer, who has his undergraduate degree as well as a doctorate in law from the Universität Tübingen, is a member of the Madrid Bar Association and the Stuttgart Bar Association and qualified to practise law in both Spain and Germany.

He has practised law since 1998 as an expert in sports law, advising athletes, athletes’ agents and institutions linked to sports. Sven Wassmer also specialises in aviation law; his clients include, among others, important commercial airlines for passengers and cargo.

Sven Wassmer comments: “I am very grateful to Monereo Meyer Abogados for giving me the opportunity to lead the areas of sports law and aviation law, to which I have dedicated my entire professional career. I am very excited to take on this challenge.”

Stefan Meyer, Managing Director of the firm, adds: “It is a great honour for Monereo Meyer Abogados that Sven Wassmer has decided to join our project. Sports law and aviation law are two innovative legal areas with a great future which we have wanted to add for some time now. With Sven this wish becomes reality, led by a widely recognised expert in the sector. This is not to forget that he is dual-qualified in Germany and Spain, making him ideal to join our multidisciplinary and intercultural team.”

Monereo Meyer Abogados has a team of 60 people, 35 of whom are lawyers or tax consultants. The majority are qualified to practise in various jurisdictions, which is highly useful for clients with international activity, especially from German- and English-speaking countries. The firm has offices in Madrid, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.
