Ranking The Sports Agent Attorneys

While no state and no players’ association requires an agent to be an attorney in order to become a licensed sports agent (the NFL does require that the person have a postgraduate degree, though), many agents did go to law school, and quite a few have passed at least one state Bar Exam.  There are […]

Representing The Potential 2010 NFL First Rounders

Dominic Perilli’s most recent 2010 NFL Mock Draft lists four rounds worth of predictions.  Today, I will only focus on the first round.  If the athletes are selected according to Dominic’s suggestions (which is very unlikely), it will be nice to know who represents those players as they are selected.  Thus, I have researched each […]

Gary Wichard Is On Freaking Fire

When you hear the term “football agent”, you most likely conjure up images of Drew Rosenhaus, Tom Condon, or Leigh Steinberg.  Why not Gary Wichard?  Wichard is the man behind Pro Tect Management, a company that may not be heard about much in the media, but already has a very impressive client list.  I’m also […]

Asomugha Drops Baker For Condon

It is an agent’s biggest fear.  You invest a ton of time, money, and your heart into a solid player who is a great role player, but not yet a super star.  He gets his chance in his respective league, gets better and better by the year, and eventually gets elected to represent his conference […]

BusinessWeek’s 2008 Power 100

Around this time last year when BusinessWeek released its Power 100, documenting the 100 most influential people in the business of sports, I was interested to see various sports agent related names pop up on the list.  Tiger Woods once again tops the overall list, but how did our guys who were mentioned last year […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

Two weeks of 2L year down, and I can honestly say that it is not too bad.  The main beef I had with my first year of law school was that I could not pick the times that my classes would meet.  My favorite class thus far has to be Labor Law.  Can’t wait until […]
