Our firm represents numerous clients in the sports and entertainment industry including a variety of prominent athletes, entertainers, media personalities, and companies.  Alan Miller, drawing from his experience as a professional football player, co-founded the National Football League’s Player’s Union and drafted its first collective bargaining agreement.


Our firm is one of the nation’s most proficient law practices in the automobile racing world.  We have represented drivers, sponsors, crew chiefs, executives, teams, and their members, and companies involved in racing activities and racing series.  We deal extensively with participants in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the Indy Racing League, and Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Series.


We have been involved in the sports and entertainment world for over thirty (30) years.  This experience distinctly qualifies us to address and negotiate matters which are unique to sports and entertainment law.  And, because many of our sports and entertainment clients have needs similar to our other clients, this expertise enables our firm to provide unique and quality representation.


Our services in this area include:

  • Preparing and negotiating agreements for drivers and other athletes, crew chiefs, pit crew members

  • Drafting agreements relating to driver development, licensing, endorsement, personal appearances, employment, racing series, supplier, and personal services

  • Drafting and negotiating title sponsor agreements (our firm represented Nextel when it became the title sponsor of the NASCAR Cup Series)

  • Drafting talent, broadcast, television, radio, and other media agreements

  • Representation of multiple NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Indy Racing League (IRL), and ARCA drivers including Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer, Casey Mears, Danica Patrick, Helio Castroneves, Adrian Fernandez, Tony Kanaan, Max Papis, Erin Crocker, Alex Zanardi, Ron Fellows, and Tim George, Jr.

  • Facilitating joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions of race teams

  • Negotiating and drafting contracts for race teams such as Michael Waltrip Racing, Diamond-Waltrip Racing, Fernandez Racing, Robert Yates Racing, and Dale Earnhardt, Inc.

  • Litigating disputes including those relating to contract, employment, and intellectual property disputes


In addition to our work with automobile racing, we also represent professional and elite-level amateur hockey players.  Members of our firm have negotiated with the National Hockey League and other leagues on behalf of clients.  Our attorneys have also represented clients in negotiations with hockey teams, working to ensure that their objectives and needs are met.
