TURKEL CUVA BARRIOS
TCB’s sports and entertainment practice represents a wide range of clients in matters relating to professional and amateur sports, including individual teams, sports facilities, athletic associations, athletes, and sponsors. The firm also represents artists and entertainment industry professionals, including creators, rights holders, licensors, individual talent, and iconic celebrities. We understand the nuances of sports and entertainment disputes, particularly the enhanced publicity those disputes may create. In that respect, we have partnered with marketing and public relations firms to manage the media side of such disputes when necessary.
We have a substantial background in representing professional athletes – including baseball players, football players, soccer players, and Olympic athletes – in negotiating, reviewing, and preparing endorsement and licensing agreements, as well as their player contracts. We have attorneys with certified player agent licenses from the MLBPA and NFLPA, as well as appropriate state licenses. As sports law and entertainment law continue to merge into one broader industry, TCB offers its litigation expertise to clients who are in this dynamic and constantly evolving profession. We understand the way the industry works and closely collaborate across practice groups to offer integrated and comprehensive advice.
