Speaker Q&A

This was a fabulously informative program. As a non-agent attorney who is also a parent, may I be present for my son's negotiations? Or am I not allowed to be present by virture of being a member of the bar?
- JulieP
This is a state-law question so the results may vary by state. But generally, provided the parent (1) does not solicit an athlete agency agreement and (2) does not accept compensation from their son/daughter they are not considered an agent. In this situation, the parent could be involved with helping their son/daughter with NIL matters.

Featured Reviews

"this was an eye-opening and candid program. I particularly appreciated his "soapbox" section at the end, which brought some sad realities of the power imbalance into focus to help us be more empathetic advocates. Overall, this was well-organized and clearly explained from beginning to end. I am even considering buying the presenter's book to learn more."
