Ladden & Allen Sports & Entertainment Program

Being a great athlete used to be enough. Today’s athlete must also be good at life.

The proof is everywhere. On any given day, you’re likely to see negative news about a professional or collegiate player criticizing a referee’s call or a Facebook photo of an act of domestic violence or spousal cheating – news which can end up going viral and becoming “Exhibit A” in the courtroom, ultimately harming a player’s all-important brand and future earning power.

For several years, members of our firm have been speaking to members of professional and college sports teams nationwide about the legal guidelines that protect against liabilities and financial exposure.

In our interactive program with team players, Ladden & Allen, Chartered partners Gemma Allen and Todd Glassman clearly and directly address issues involving personal relationships; and the dangers of media exposure to a player’s career and personal life. They are writing a book, The New Sports Deal: A Playbook for Life Off the Field, offering solutions based on their knowledge as family lawyers and their experiences working with athletes.
