It is with great excitement that I announce to everyone at Sports Agent Blog the creation of my law firm, HEITNER LEGAL.  Creating my own law firm was an idea I had for a while.  It finally seemed like the right time to make the move, and I could not be happier that I chose to go down that path.  Thanks to all the clients who have already signed retainers with the firm.  The focus will be business transactions and litigation, intellectual property and of course a heavy dose of entertainment and sports.  This week on FORBES: (1) Father Of BODYARMOR Speaks About Plan To Disrupt The Sports Drink Industry; (2) Charles Schwab Partners With Hunter Pence To Push New Tagline Through Digital Promotion; (3) Questions About Miami Heat Go Beyond Status Of The Big Three; (4) Noah Vonleh, Tyler Ennis And LaQuinton Ross Describe Their NBA Draft Dreams; (5) Sports Licensing Soars To $698 Million In Royalty Revenue; (6) Loss Of Redskins Trademark Registration Is Overblown; and (7) How A $4.9 Billion Purchase Of PokerStars Could Change Online Poker In America.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
