Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/7/2017)

Lots of 7’s in today’s date. It’s a big month for me. I’m closing (hopefully) on a house on July 31, which is not so easy when you’re also trying to run a law firm. Then, I have a tenant moving into my current place at the beginning of August. So, end of July/early August will be just a tad stressful. I wrote a Medium post on why I stopped serving as a sports agent. It was written from my phone while at the gym, but it seems to have received quite a bit of appreciation. Maybe I’ll jot down some more thoughts on that platform in the future.

Thanks this week goes out to NetBet Casino!

This week on Forbes:
(1) Nike Needs To Back Off Its Attempt To Spike Rob Gronkowski’s Trademark Filing;

Sports Law

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.
