Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/16/2015)

Last week and weekend, I was in Atlanta supporting a HEITNER LEGAL client My Mixtapez at the A3C Festival & Conference. It was a blast to be there in attendance and meet many notable artists and labels in the hip-hop scene. Another exciting moment was accepting an invitation to lead a new sports business beat at Inc. Magazine. My first contribution should probably be up tomorrow. I’ve been staying busy with legal work and radio/TV appearances on developments in the daily fantasy sports industry. I will also be featured on Inside Edition this evening to discuss Lamar Odom’s financial situation. Here are some stories you may have missed over the past week:




Sports Business

By Darren Heitner

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.
