Luke Fedlam quoted in article about Florida Gators NIL matter

The Colorado Springs Gazette

Sports Law attorney Luke Fedlam was interviewed for and quoted in the story, "How can we prevent another Jaden Rashada-Florida Gators situation?" published in The Colorado Springs Gazette. 

From The Gazette:

"Luke Fedlam, who leads the firm Porter Wright’s sports law practice, said they could start their own name, image and likeness funds. Donors could earmark contributions directly for player payments instead of facilities or scholarships.

"'Then it’s the school almost taking over name, image and likeness and bringing it all in house,' said Fedlam, a founder and managing partner of the advisory firm AdvanceNIL.

"Fedlam’s option causes schools to accept more liability if a deal falls through. The tradeoff is that enforcement agencies don’t have to deal with third parties, and donors can work directly with people they know and trust."
