Social Dialogue and Stakeholder Management
In the world of sports, the rules established by international sporting organizations such as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Federation of Football Federations (FIFA) and agreements reached among various stakeholders form the "Industry Law." Therefore, in the field of sports law, it is essential to properly understand the content and structure of such "Industry Laws."
To ensure that such "industry laws" are fair and equitable, and to ensure that they are applied and enforced properly, it is essential for stakeholders to participate and exercise their influence in the decision-making process. Since the establishment of our firm, we have often represented various stakeholders in such activities.

From such experience, we have accumulated deep knowledge with respect to industry practices, institutional history, the balance of power among stakeholders, political, social, and economic factors that may affect negotiations, and future changes in the structure of the industry. We utilize these experiences and international networks to formulate strategies for our clients and assist clients to implement such strategies through concrete measures, including legal actions public relations strategies, and the exercise of political influence.

For example, in collective bargaining on behalf of players’ associations, we conduct various negotiations based on medium-to-long-term strategies. We tailor our negotiation strategies according to the systems of specific countries and regions, while covering a wide range of topics, such as rules of transfer and conditions for participation in international tournaments. We always evaluate various options based on their comparative leverages and tie the most effective strategy to effective actions.

We frequently advise athletic organizations on strategies and actions related to stakeholder relationships, such as how national sport organizations should respond to decisions of international sports organizations and to avoid undue disadvantage.
