Dr Frank Rybak is one of the most experienced and leading sports lawyers in Germany. For more than 20 years he has been advising, supporting and representing athletes, coaches, managers and other individuals active in sports – especially in the field of football – in all legal matters relating to sports law.
As a specialist in sports law, labour law and medical law, Dr Rybak is uniquely qualified in Germany to provide legal advice to professional sportsmen and women in whose working lives player contracts, transfers, health and injuries play a central role.
The attorney at law, who comes from Northeim, has acquired an excellent reputation in the industry both nationally and internationally due to his legal activities and successes.
However, Dr Rybak isn't just distinguished by his competence, experience and knowledge – he also attends to his clients with a genuine passion for football, coupled with a fascination for jurisprudence and the legal context of sport.
For his doctorate in 1998 he actually chose the topic “The legal relationship between the licensed football player and his club”.
With a high level of commitment to each of his clients, he has been involved in countless national and international transfers, has reviewed and drafted contracts in this context, and has successfully conducted numerous proceedings before state courts, arbitration tribunals and federation courts for his clients.
