Sports and Entertainment

Maynard, Cooper & Gale represents a variety of clients in the industries of sports, entertainment and media.

Our entertainment clients have included Emmy Award winners, Grammy-winning musicians and two of the highest paid television actors of all time.  Our clients embrace the fact that our lawyers are not typical “entertainment” lawyers based in Hollywood. We offer the discretion that many clients in this industry seek for their high profile transactions.

Maynard Cooper’s sports clients include top ten picks in the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts, coaches and race car drivers. We routinely prepare and negotiate complex contracts and endorsement deals. Additionally, our attorneys have represented universities and their athletic departments in licensing and media rights transactions that have generated significant revenue for their programs.
