Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (1/7/2011)

Here we go with the first Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up of the new year.  I can’t say that I am disappointed with how 2011 has begun.  I am working on some very interesting sports and entertainment legal issues, and things are also quite busy at Dynasty, where we are working hard on procuring deals for our current clients and signing up new clients to become a part of our growing family.  I’m going to leave it at that for this week and head straight to the stories I was not able to cover since New Years Eve:





  • Leon Rose – the family man from Cherry Hill [Shot Caller].
  • Len Elmore believes that the best way to combat agents, runners and misleading advisers is through information and education [Inside iHoops].

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.
