Sports Law

From the outset, it’s important to note that “sports law” doesn’t exist. Sports lawyers are professionals that represent athletes, coaches, trainers, athletic directors, etc. (“sports industry professionals”). Sports lawyers apply their areas of expertise (marketing, intellectual property, labor & employment, etc.) to the sports industry. The Wilson Firm specializes in representing sports industry professionals in their “off the court” transactional business and tax law matters. For the most part, sports agents do a fantastic job negotiating and securing their client’s primary source of income, their salary. But then what? The modern-day sports industry professional is savvy and has a multitude of business opportunities to consider. This is where The Wilson Firm’s expertise comes into play. We bridge the gap between a sports industry professional’s salary and their business, private foundation, and investment opportunities.

 

 

 

 

The numbers support the need for our representation in the sports industry. Retired professional athlete bankruptcy numbers are astounding “… 78% of the NFL players, 60% of the NBA players, and a very large percentage of MLB (4x that of the average U.S. citizen) file bankruptcy within five years of retirement.” Our objective is simple; help current and retired sports industry professionals defeat those statistics.
