Please join Arent Fox, a Law360 Sports Group of the Year, for the second installment in our Sports Law CLE Spring Series.

In our second installment, we address the various steps that sports organizations can proactively take to protect themselves and mitigate risks through compliance protocols, audits and related employee training.

The sports industry has come under the same public and legal scrutiny that other businesses and industries have encountered for years and in today's instant news environment, headlines are abuzz with various allegations of misconduct throughout the industry. Our panelists will provide a primer on how organizations can proactively minimize the impact of such issues as well as prevent additional damage if they come under scrutiny for highly sensitive matters.

Intellectual property lies at the heart of a sports organization's commercial opportunities and value. IP rights and the legal protections they provide support the economic value of an organization, but also exposes a company to significant liability if employees are not trained to understand it. Our panelists will discuss best practices surrounding obtaining and protecting intellectual property rights, ensuring employees understand your IP rights and the rights of others, mitigating risks in the use of social media, and ways to ensure compliance with various contractual arrangements and partnerships.

Panelists for the program include:

Jennifer O'Sullivan
Arent Fox Sports Law Group partner

Robert Capers
Arent Fox Government Enforcement & White Collar Co-Practice Leader

Temitope Yusuf
Arent Fox Government Enforcement & White Collar partner

Richard LaCava
