An athlete needs competent representation from draft through retirement and beyond. During his or her playing years, an athlete faces many issues both on and off the field. Some relate directly to the athlete’s playing career, such as contract negotiations and potential endorsement opportunities, while others – such as family law matters – can have an indirect and negative effect on performance if they are not handled properly, even though they may not be directly related to the athlete’s career.

Whether the player is interested in purchasing a home, setting up an estate plan, analyzing a business opportunity or protecting his or her right of publicity, clients turn to Fox Rothschild for advice and representation.
