Understanding Sports Law
Sports law includes many different areas of law; your attorney should be well-versed in everything from contract law to employment law, personal injury litigation, and more. Additionally, you want an attorney who understands the specific concerns of sports industry professionals, including celebrity status and media attention, travel schedules, and other issues that are less common outside of the amateur and professional sports industries.
At Potts Law Firm, we know these issues inside and out. Our attorneys understand the various concerns of amateur and professional athletes and coaches, as well as agents, managers, trainers, administrators, and others in the industry. We work directly with our clients to understand their unique needs, then handle the various legal aspects with minimal disruption. We will provide clear and consistent communication and often work to limit or obtain media exposure as necessary.
Sports Law Cases We Handle
We have a long history of success handling all types of sports law cases.
Our main areas of practice within sports law include:
- Contract Law: Sports industry professionals must often negotiate and sign various contracts, including contracts regarding an individual’s entrance into or exit from a team or club. Our attorneys understand the many nuances of sports contract law and are adept at protecting sports industry professionals during contract negotiations, litigation, and related proceedings. We have represented many clients in cases involving breaches of contract, salary negotiations, contract review, contract drafting, and more.
- Personal Injury: Athletes at both the professional and amateur levels are susceptible to a wide range of injuries. While injuries are often accepted as simply part of the risks inherent in gameplay, many of these incidents are avoidable. When negligence contributes to an injury, the injured party could have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. A claim may be filed against a negligent administration, training entity, or similar party. Potts Law Firm has successfully represented numerous athletes in complex personal injury litigation.
- Employment Law: In addition to contractual issues, sports employment law covers a wide variety of areas, such as equal opportunities, fair treatment, workplace discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and more. Athletes, coaches, and other sports industry professionals should protect their rights by working with an attorney who has experience in this particular area of law. At Potts Law Firm, we have assisted clients with all types of sports employment matters and have the resources to pursue your case.
No matter your legal needs, you can rely on the Kansas City sports lawyers at Potts Law Firm to provide a high level of personalized representation. We know that no two situations are alike, which is why we develop innovative and customized legal strategies designed to maximize the success of our clients.
