Overview

Wagnsson Sports & Entertainment AB derives from Advokatfirman Wagnsson and Advokaterna Wagnsson & Sommestad, two law firms that originally were founded by the lawyers Björn Wagnsson and Mats Sommestad in 1975. In 2009 the sports related business was separated from the law firm in a separate enterprise owned by Martin Klette. The new enterprise is specialized in sports and entertainment related law, but also covers business law, labor law and family law. We also work with former athletes and artists on consulting basis.

Wagnsson Sports & Entertainment represents individual athletes and artists during and after their active careers. We negotiate clients´ employment contracts and sponsor contracts, make sure they have a proper insurance coverage, help them handle any trade mark registration and provide legal consulting  when needed. Regarding asset management and media handling for the clients we are in contact with several consulting companies specialized in these matters. However, we always make sure to secure the quality of their work. Thus, we provide a comprehensive service that covers the clients´ needs during and after the career.

Our employees have university degrees in either law, business, behavioral sciences and communication studies. In addition to these employees we have former professional athletes and artists who provide our clients with important and necessary advice about their own careers. We call them our mentors and they are a big asset to Wagnsson Sports & Entertainment.
