Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a business, sports and entertainment lawyer as well as a professional sports agent. My firm works closely with growing businesses, sports franchises, production companies, films and other entertainment events to raise capital, protect intellectual property, negotiate key agreements, as well as leverage assets and brand value.

My approach to legal representation is simple: Transparency and honesty. You will have a firm understanding of the entire process, no matter the issue, from start to finish. Due to my flat fee billing structure, I am able to become more like a partner as the fee will not change no matter how many calls or meetings are had.

As a player-agent for professional athletes, I am what I like to refer to as "professionally aggressive". I pride myself in getting the best player-contract for my athletes, as well as maximizing the potential earnings for their personal brand via endorsements and sponsorships. This comes down to key negotiating tactics and a strong positioning, which is crafted up very strategically from day one of working with me.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up a consultation. I look forward to working with you.
