"Manotti Jenkins represented and counseled our famous, but small family owned business, Hillerich & Bradsby Co. (Louisville Slugger), in various patent infringement litigations. Two of these cases were critical to an important product line and market share. One of the critical cases was venued in Japan but had possible impact to an ongoing matter in the US. Manotti is an agile and tactical trial lawyer who never loses sight of the strategic goals of a case, while efficiently applying his time and resources to accomplish ultimate goals. H&B is pleased with every result Manotti has achieved for us, and in the manner in which he represents us. Manotti is a valued current member of our retained outside counsel group."
Steve Lyverse, Vice President & General Counsel, Hillerich & Bradsby Co.
Sports & Entertainment Law
The Firm represents sports & entertainment clients. For our sports clients, we draft, analyze and review business agreements; handle any and all litigation that may arise; handle all of their IP matters; and serve as their General Legal Counsel with respect to their business affairs (for profit and non-profit) beyond sports, as well as planning and putting into place their business activities beyond their sports careers.
While we are not "sports agents," meaning we do not directly negotiate with professional sports entities on behalf of our clients, we provide legal services beyond what traditional agents provide, particularly since many agents are not attorneys (and even the ones who are do not provide the breath of legal services we provide for our clients).
For our entertainment clients, we draft, analyze and review their business agreements; handle any and all litigation that may arise; advise them on all manner of activities in the entertainment arena; handle all of their IP matters; and identify and negotiate deals with prospective agents, managers, and other necessary professionals for them to have successful careers.
