Benoît is an experienced Swiss sports lawyer and a CAS arbitrator. He holds a Master in International Sports Law (LL.M.).
Before founding his law firm in Zurich (Switzerland) in May 2020, he served as General Counsel and Director of Legal Affairs of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), for nearly seven years. During his tenure at the AFC, he developed extensive and specific skills in commercial sports law (sponsorship, media rights and merchandising agreements), acquired significant experience in disciplinary & ethics proceedings, good governance and sports integrity issues (competition and match manipulation, age cheating and anti-doping). He also provided advice to the AFC Board on high level legal and strategic matters.

Having worked in many international environments across different continents such as South America (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Asia (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) – Benoît has developed a vast and extensive network and knowledge of the international sports legal and business industry worldwide. Having travelled all around the world for business purposes, Benoît gained a privileged access to sports leaders and key decision-makers.

In 2017, his achievements were recognized at the Leaders Under 40 Awards in London for the category “Legal & Governance”.

We are excited for Benoît as he joins The FBA Family and continues to deliver lectures and sharing his extensive experience with The FBA Candidates!
