Let’s win together.
The rights of an athlete’s name, image and likeness need to be secured. Our team of expert attorneys are ready to protect, navigate, and advise athletes as they look to benefit from these opportunities.
On June 30, 2021, the NCAA Division 1 Board of Directors adopted rule changes that temporarily dispensed restrictions previously prohibiting college athletes from making money in connection with their status as student-athletes. These changes are commonly referred to as the Name Image and Likeness (NIL) Rules.
Our Sports Law Group leverages the diverse legal and business expertise of a number of Shuttleworth attorneys to service the unique needs of athletes and businesses navigating the opportunities new NIL laws and NCAA guidelines present.
Our attorneys bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in several areas of law that are important in this evolving area including: commercial contracts, licensing agreements, rights of publicity, business formation, tax, employment and independent contractor matters, intellectual property, investigations, and commercial litigation.
