The Condon Law Firm has represented businesses and individuals with various sports law cases. The first exposure to Sports Law dates to 1998 through the Marquette University Law School’s Sports Law Institute. Mr. Condon represented the university on the National Sports Law Moot Court team, traveling to New Orleans to argue a case in-front of local judges, including one member of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. The issue was the NFL’s antitrust exemption involving television rights. Once in private practice, Mr. Condon was involved in sports law cases involving vendors (football), youth contracts (soccer), personal injury (equestrian) and business contracts (baseball). Mr. Condon was also able to combine his sports-law experience with the litigation background, to advise clients in all aspects of a sports-law practice. This background includes the court-system, the arbitration process, and mediation.
Indeed, what it takes to effectively represent clients in sports law is a wide-range of experience in multiple areas, ranging from labor, to contracts, to industry specific regulations such as antitrust laws, and intellectual property. These areas are where Condon Law Firm comes in. What clients are looking for, is the general knowledge and representation on the field. Mr. Condon’s sports-law knowledge and background allows him to understand the big picture and find the best solution for the client.
