United States: Industry focus

Within: Sport

Winston & Strawn LLP has a particular niche in athlete representation, particularly in disputes. David Feher and Jeffrey Kessler are representing a number of current NCAA student athletes claiming that a ban on professionalism in college sports is a violation of antitrust law (Jenkins v NCAA). Away from the courtroom, the pair advised the National Basketball Players Association in its new collective bargaining agreement with the NBA; other union clients include the NFLPA, which it successfully represented in an arbitration against the league concerning the calculation of revenue for the purposes of the salary cap. In addition, the firm advises a number of sports agents and the North American Soccer League; the league alleges that US Soccer’s decision to grant it Division II rather than Division I status alongside MLS is a violation of antitrust law. David Greenspan is also a name of note in the New York-based practice.
