Hackney Publications Publishes Third Annual ‘100 Law Firms with Sports Law Practices You Need to Know About’

Hackney Publications announced today that it has published the third annual “100 Law Firms with Sports Law Practices You Need to Know About,” a portal that serves as a resource for those in the sports industry who need of experienced and capable legal counsel.

The firms are listed alphabetically, an ode to the difficulty in actually ranking such firms. Narrowing the list to just 100 law firms was also a challenge, according to Holt Hackney, who has been editing and publishing sports law periodicals for 25 years.

“More and more firms are introducing dedicated sports law practices,” said Hackney. “The list is dynamic. It is better than last year’s list. And the list in subsequent years will be better than this one.”

Hackney Publications relies on readers, professors, and other industry experts in creating the list.“We’re proud of the fact that there is nothing out there quite like it. The fact that anyone can come to the site and search for firms that specialize in certain areas of sports law is an added benefit.”

Among the many firms included on the list are:

Boies Schiller Flexner LLP

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP

Church Church Hittle + Antrim

Fox Rothschild LLP

Greenberg Glusker LLP

Greenspoon Marder LLP

Herrick, Feinstein LLP

Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP

Lightfoot, Franklin & White

Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP


Power Cronin, LTD

Ricci Tyrrell Johnson & Grey, PLLC

Rifkin Weiner Livingston LLC

Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson, PA

Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney

Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP

Spencer Fane LLP

Thompson Coburn LLP

The portal has synergy with Sports Law Expert, a blog that features regular content on a daily basis 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.
