At Porter Wright, we help professional athletes navigate the complex business and personal matters they face every day. Our team has significant experience advising clients in estate planning and asset protection, franchise and start-up business analysis, real estate development, and intellectual property disputes and protection, as well as nonprofit formation, governance and management.
As a player, coach, agent or parent, it is essential to maintain the right support system around an athlete. We seamlessly interface with the athlete’s team of advisors to provide the tailored and objective advice necessary to make informed decisions. Our advisors provide independent and objective counsel that gives balance to the team and keeps the athlete’s interests first. It is this well rounded approach that allows the athlete to plan for the future, knowing their business and personal interests are protected.
Regardless of what phase an athlete is at in their career – rookie, veteran or retired player – the right guidance recognizes present opportunities while preparing for what lies ahead. We know there is life before, during and after sports. Our job is to help protect athletes and maximize the positive impact they can have on themselves, their families and their communities both now and beyond their playing days.
