I’m heading to Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens today with my trusty law clerk, because one must always have a decent golf game in order to properly practice law. On Monday, it is off to Ireland where I will be for a week. It is shaping to be a pretty decent summer. Meanwhile, the new HEITNER LEGAL is off to a fantastic start. We have been able to solve many problems for a variety of clients. Let us know if we can ever help you. This week on FORBES: (1) Jimmy Graham Should Be Infuriated By Tight End Franchise Tag; (2) World Cup: Adidas Is All In With Argentina And Germany; (3) LeBron James’ Agent Is Just Doing His Job; (4) Fantasy Football Channel Coming To DirecTV; (5) Fairness Of NFL Concussion Settlement Still To Be Tested; (6) Andrew Wiggins’ Creative Adidas Contract Includes Opt Out Provision; and (7) Data Driven Baseball Insights Platform Has All-Star Potential. And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
