"If you can keep your wits about you while all others are losing theirs, and blaming you.  The world will be yours and everything in it, what's more, you'll be a man, my son."

    --  Rudyard Kipling

In sports and entertainment, and business in general, crisis can emerge immediately and requires swift action. The Firm has substantial experience advising clients in crisis and is experienced in developing and implementing an effective plan to address the crisis at hand.  Whether it is crafting a communication plan or developing a legal strategy to protect the client's interests, the Firm is adept at assisting clients working through the most strenuous times.  For example, the Firm has advised a NFL first round draft pick through an extortion attempt on the eve of the NFL Draft, professional athletes who have been arrested following physical altercations, a professional sports franchise accused of damaging the career of an athletes in the handling of an injury, and sports labor organization after the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement and the possibility of a lockout.  In each circumstance, the Firm quickly and effectively navigated media scrutiny and attention and prepared for litigation.     


The following are examples of services previously provided (results may vary), but this is not an exhaustive list of prior representation:

  • Advised a first round draft pick and devised a plan to eliminate an extortion attempt on the eve of the NFL Draft.
