Athlete Representation (NIL)


The landscape of NCAA athletics is drastically changing, and our Athlete Representation group works to aid NCAA student-athletes by putting them in the position to appropriately navigate compliance challenges while effectively taking advantage of new changes. The Athlete Representation practice of Goldberg & Simpson helps current and prospective NCAA athletes protect their eligibility while negotiating, and entering into, endorsements and deals arising out of and related to their Name, Image, and Likeness.

Our Athlete Representation Attorney services include:

  • Providing contract drafting, contract review, and offering legal advice where appropriate when an athlete is entering into an approved NIL relationship with business partners and/or appropriate third parties;
  • Drafting and/or reviewing of business documents that will likely accompany NIL related business relationships;
  • Providing legal representation in connection with the collection of money earned by a student-athlete, and more.

Consulting with an attorney before engaging in any business venture is always recommended. Engaging in the business of monetizing your NIL is no exception, namely because of vastly unchartered NCAA compliance and eligibility considerations. G & S Attorneys are NOT agents.
