We advised the Latvian Sports Federation Council in relation to the formation of a possible sports governance model with only one organisation at its centre. The aim was that this new organisation could result from the reorganisation of the Latvian Sports Federation Council and the Latvian Olympic Committee.
Reorganisation via merger is a legal tool that can be used by associations to create a single organisation. The aim of this kind of organisation is to ensure transparency and simplicity in the sports governance model, so that it can be efficient in cooperation with the state and municipalities; this new organisation can also act as a central point for governance of financing and assets.
The aim of the analysis performed by Sorainen was to come up with a road map – i.e. the main steps to be carried out from the legal perspective to implement such a sports governance model. We also developed recommendations for the governance bodies of the new organisation, the decision-making process and the status and scope of rights of the members of the new organisation.
The Sorainen team consisted of country managing partner Eva Berlaus and senior associate Zane Paeglīte.
