German handball international Christian Dissinger made a successful return to DKB Handball-Bundesliga on Easter Monday: after an outstanding come-from-behind game by TUS N-Lübbecke, Dissinger gave the decisive assist for the equalizer against Frisch Auf! Göppingen in the very last second of the game.
Dissinger, represented by the agency of consultants Global MMK GmbH, Heidelberg, under the management of Marc Rapparlié, had been without a team since July 2013 after his move from Kadetten Schaffhausen AG, Switzerland, to Atlético Madrid, as a result of the top Spanish team's insolvency. Lawyers and sports law experts Dr. Johan-Michel Menke, LL.M., and Thomas Schulz, LL.M., of commercial law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek arranged Dissinger’s necessary international transfer to Deutscher Handballbund e.V., Dortmund, during the week before Easter. This is unusual in professional sports because the transfer took place outside of the regular transfer period.
