In Need of Sports Litigation Attorneys?

At the Law Offices of Pearlman, Brown & Wax, LLP, our sports litigation attorneys in California have been developing curated, cutting-edge defense strategies for team owners, management, and insurance company clients for nearly four decades.

Since California has become a popular settling place for many professional athletes, including professional football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer players, there has been a sharp increase in lawsuits filed against their former sports teams and employers.

Whether the lawsuits’ origins stem from player and coach contract disputes, licensing and merchandising rights, access to insurance and benefits, personal injuries, or defamation claims, the jurisdictional right of the athlete to bring their claim in California is often the crux of the case.

Our skilled sports litigation attorneys have hands-on knowledge and experience in addressing the wide range of legal issues that our clients endure when they are faced with a lawsuit from a former player or employee, which is why each is immediately evaluated and challenged based on the personal and subject matter threshold.

With over 50 skilled litigation specialists and support staff members, our comprehensive representation is a culmination of teamwork. We plan each step of our clients’ defense strategies to ensure we are covering any overlapping issues that will complicate their businesses now and going forward, so together we can put these lawsuits behind them.

At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, LLP we believe in the power of innovation, experience, and results.
