Pittsburgh Sports Law Committee

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has its fair share of influential sports lawyers.  Now they have their own hangout.

Gerik Jenco, a University of Pittsburgh law student who is also the Director of Operations for Del Duca Sports, came up with the idea of creating a Sports Law Committee of the Allegheny County Bar Association.  The chair of the Committee is former NFL Player, attorney-agent, and sports law educator, Ralph Cindrich.  Sports attorney Jay Reisinger is the Committee’s vice chair.

Roughly a dozen people showed up to the Committee’s first meeting, but the group is expected to grow to about thirty members strong.  If you are a sports lawyer or law student in the Greater Pittsburgh area and think you would be interested in becoming a part of the group, reach out to one of the people linked above.
