Professional Sports Employment Dispute

Jul 6, 2009

Conducted a mock arbitration study on behalf of a professional sports team in an employment dispute with a player. The employment dispute was governed by the terms of a collective bargaining agreement and was subject to an arbitration provision. The study involved presenting briefing, oral arguments, and evidence to a panel of mock arbitrators recruited from across the country for their expertise and experience in sports employment law. The study results helped shape the trial team’s arbitration strategies and assess risks associated with the arbitration. A confidential settlement was reached after the study and shortly before the scheduled arbitration.
