Need help with a sports law matter?

A sports attorney works with professional athletes. A sports attorney will work with the athlete, and his agent and or manager, to negotiate and draft all aspects of the athlete's work including compensation, contracts, licensing and other contractual rights. In case of dispute a sports attorney will also litigate on the athlete's behalf. In some cases a sports attorney may serve as both the agent and attorney for the athlete. An attorney is an important resource and partner for a professional athlete.
