Quinn Emanuel has emerged in the last few years as the preeminent law firm providing litigation and investigation services to the sports industry. Our white collar and investigation practice has received multiple international rankings in the last several years for our high-visibility representation of FIFA in the ongoing U.S. criminal prosecutions. Already in 2018, Sports Illustrated has described our preemptive internal investigation for the Carolina Panthers into whether team owner Jerry Richardson engaged in workplace misconduct, as a “brilliant stroke of crisis management.”
Our practice is regularly on the front page of the sports section these days, but Quinn Emanuel also has a deep bench of long-standing experience in the industry. We have defended the Cowboys’ use of “America’s Team,” FanDuel’s advertising practices, Upper Deck getting sued by Topps over trading cards, ESPN’s use of “Playmakers,” Nike suing Adidas over stripes on shoes, and the owner of the rights to the Heisman trophy, to list just a few.
