Hackney Publications Announces Second Annual ‘100 Law Firms with Sports Law Practices You Need to Know About’ Portal
100lawfirms.com is portal that serves as a resource for those in need of experienced and capable legal counsel in the sports law arena.
Hackney Publications announced today the second annual “100 Law Firms with Sports Law Practices You Need to Know About,” a portal that serves as a resource for those in need of experienced and capable legal counsel in the sports law arena.
The firms are listed alphabetically, an ode to the difficulty in actually ranking such firms.
“There are firms on this list that offer a complete menu of sports law specialties, while there are others that specialize in one particular area,” said Holt Hackney, the founder of Hackney Publications, which has been publishing sports law periodicals for more than two decades.
“The firms selected for the list were chosen based on our objective perspective as journalists as well as our readers,” added Hackney. “They were included in the list as a service to the industry and as a way to give sports industry participants a guide from which to select legal representation.”
Another feature of the site is the search by specialization feature, where those in search of expert legal counsel can narrow their search by zeroing in on certain areas of sports law.
Hackney noted that the portal has synergy with Sports Law Expert, a blog that features regular free content as well as a directory of legal experts and their particular specialty. “This directory has been around for a decade and has led to new business for many attorneys as well as expert witness engagements for the academic community,” said Hackney.
Among the many firms included on the list are:
• Bailey & Glasser, LLP
• Boies Schiller Flexner LLP
• Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP
• Drew Eckl & Farnham LLP
• Freeman Lovell, PLLC
• Goldstein & McClintock LLLP
• Herrick, Feinstein LLP
• Jackson Lewis P.C.
• Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.
• Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP
• PARRON LAW
• Ricci Tyrrell Johnson & Grey, PLLC
• Rifkin Weiner Livingston LLC
• Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson, PA
• Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney
Of the 13 periodicals Hackney publishes, Sports Litigation Alert (subscription-based) is the core periodical, publishing 24 times a year. Each Alert features five case summaries and eight to ten articles. All pieces are written by expert attorneys, professors, law students, and staff. The Alert is a staple in higher education, where it is used in close to 100 sports law classrooms in any given semester. It also features a searchable archive of more than 3,000 case summaries and articles.
Hackney also publishes six other subscription-based periodicals, three in the collegiate athletics space – Legal Issues in Collegiate Athletics, the Journal of NCAA Compliance, and NIL Institutional Report – as well as Legal Issues in High School Athletics, Concussion Litigation Reporter, and Professional Sports and the Law.
In addition, there are six complimentary publications, including Sports Facilities and the Law, Esports and the Law, My Legal Bookie, Title IX Alert, Sports Medicine and the Law, and Concussion Defense Reporter
