Pérez-Llorca joins #SpainFirstFellowship to provide legal advice on professional reinvention of athletes  

May 22, 2024

The Real Federación Española de Rugby continues to add partners to #SpainFirstFellowship, a programme dedicated to training and supporting professional athletes, starting with rugby players, introducing them to the world of work and facilitating their professional reinvention with the help of great business allies.

The signing of the agreement with Spain’s leading law firm, Pérez-Llorca, adds an important asset to the programme in terms of legal training, basic knowledge of the rights, duties and responsibilities of all citizens, as well as in-depth knowledge of everything related to sports law.

The inclusion of this important legal partner represents a structural improvement to the #SpainFirstFellowship in its commitment to enriching the journey of rugby players and helping them to develop their full potential.

"Pérez-Llorca’s support is important in the 360º training programme we are proposing. We consider it essential that our athletes know their rights and responsibilities, as well as the legal framework in which they operate personally and professionally, in this case everything related to sports law," said Margarita Ortiz, programme designer and director of the Real Federación Española de Rugby.

"It is an honour for us to be part of the #SpainFirstFellowship programme and to be able to guide our country’s athletes in different legal disciplines to help them in their professional lives once they leave elite competition," said Pedro Pérez-Llorca, Managing Partner of Pérez-Llorca.

The experimental pilot, launched in March with the Spanish Women’s 7s Rugby National Team, has demonstrated the effectiveness of the system in identifying and capturing national talent, guiding them throughout their sporting careers and providing them with professional, holistic, comprehensive and measurable support. This programme is already helping players to access and achieve education, employment and personal development opportunities while pursuing and achieving excellence in professional rugby, thus facilitating professional reinvention after their sporting careers.

The #SpainFirstFellowship was developed in collaboration with the Consejo Superior de Deportes and counts with the participation of important partners from the professional and business world, such as KPMG, Microsoft-Founderz, LinkedIn, LHH (Adecco Group), Fundación máshumano, Alumne LMS, Ágora News, Universidad de Comillas and 8Belts. now joined by Pérez-Llorca.
