Sports and Entertainment

In each of the last three soccer World Cups, the FIFA Cup in Korea/Japan, Germany, and South Africa, FERRERE worked successfully in the negotiations and in resolving broadcasting and marketing rights disputes. Very early on, the firm established a specialized practice group in this area, and the group leader, Agustín Mayer West, is now recognized as one of the leading Latin American experts and specialists in the field.

FERRERE currently represents first-division soccer clubs and international sponsors in sensitive matters involving image and audiovisual broadcast rights, contracting of sports stars, matters brought before the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA), and innovative financing structures, among others.

In Bolivia, FERRERE has provided comprehensive advice on the organization of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) events, broadcasting of sports events, and negotiations for contracting international signals as part of paid TV listings.

FERRERE is also a player in development of the audiovisual entertainment industry. Many of the principal advertising spots and feature films produced in Uruguay have had the firm’s legal assistance. The firm was contracted by the Cinema and Audiovisual Institute of Uruguay (ICAU) to draft regulations for its operation, structure its calls for bids and funding, and advise on the industry’s increasing growth in the country.
