Sports Related Businesses

Taking Your Business to the Top

​When you're in a sports-related business, it’s important to have a legal team that understands your goals, clients, and industry. We have decades of experience helping clients in this space with all of their legal needs. Like how we successfully represented Adidas in arguing against certification of a class action suit. Or how we successfully represented Kelly Slater Wave Co. with intellectual property and corporate business matters and continue to represent the company on all intellectual property matters.
