By Athletes, For Athletes

At Murphy, Pearson, Bradley & Feeney, we understand the specific legal needs of those involved in the sports and entertainment world. Many of our attorneys are former collegiate and professional athletes, and we pull from our deep bench of knowledge to unite elite legal services with an invaluable perspective and passion for sports and entertainment. Together, we find innovative solutions to the complex problems that arise daily in the rapidly evolving sports and entertainment industries.

We provide multidisciplinary expertise to counsel collegiate and professional athletes, coaches, professional sports organizations, collectives, universities, and entertainers in various areas. From protecting intellectual property rights, negotiating contracts, and risk management to resolving disputes involving employment, real estate, and misappropriation of funds by fiduciaries, our full-service firm offers sage advice, personal attention, and powerful advocacy with the perseverance of an athlete.

Our services include assisting sports and entertainment clients faced with high-profile, high-risk situations in connection with litigation and internal, civil, and criminal investigations. Additionally, at Murphy Pearson, we are uniquely structured to assist universities, collectives, sports management companies, and athletes capitalize on the new opportunities available under Name Image and Likeness (“NIL”) legislation. We also advise those throughout the entertainment industry, from authors and graphic artists to entertainers, as well as their heirs, businesses, and others, to continue the legacies they create.
