Covid-19 impacts on football: International Bar Association interviews partner Simone Lahorgue


Partner Simone Lahorgue Nunes was interviewed by Jonathan Watson for the article “Sport: pandemic increases urgency of calls for reform in football” published on the IBA’s website.

Simone believes that many big clubs – which she defines as those with a larger fan base – are conscious of their importance and want to play among themselves, exploiting the broadcasting rights of those matches in a separate package.

Simone is the head of Levy & Salomão’s Media, Entertainment and Sports Law Practice Group and Senior Vice-Chair of the IBA Sports Law Subcommittee.
