Who we are at

Silva Kägi Law

I am Lívia Silva Kägi, the woman behind Silva Kägi Law.
I am a Brazilian lawyer, graduated at the University of Brasília (UnB) in 2005, admitted to the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB-DF) in 2006, living and working in Zurich, Switzerland since 2010.

After graduating I have gathered experience in several legal areas and, since 2011, I am active in the field of sports law, having had a successful, long career in dispute resolution – first and second instances – in the Legal Division of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

Since September 2021, I am acting as an independent consultant and lawyer in sports, offering companies, international organisations and individuals services such as review and analysis of legal documents related to sports law, training of legal personnel, knowledge sharing, mentoring and more.

Due to my current position as Acting Deputy Chairwoman of the FIFA DRC, I am currently not representing any parties before deciding bodies or offering advice to lawyers in legal disputes.

My specialities are contract and labour law and I am deeply committed to the women's causes in sports and in general.

I am a passionate reader, music maker and listener, a ballet dancer and spectator, a curious traveller, and have an insatiable hunger for knowledge and justice.

I am able to assist you in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and German.
