Goldberg Segalla was named one of the top 20 law firms in the United States catering to professional sports teams by Professional Sports and the Law, an online trade publication for attorneys representing teams in Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, and the National Basketball Association.

Goldberg Segalla earned placement on the publication’s inaugural list alongside some of the country’s largest and most well-established firms, with the recognition highlighting the strengths of its Sports and Entertainment Practice Group. Led by partner and practice group Chair Joseph M. Hanna, this dynamic 20-lawyer group helps sports franchises, team owners, professional athletes, and leagues address a variety of legal needs and challenges, from negotiating contracts, endorsement deals, and licensing agreements to protecting publicity and privacy rights.

Professional Sports and the Law’s list is based on input from the journal’s readership and from leading professors of sports law around the country. “We are honored to have such a high endorsement from one of the leading voices in our industry,” Joe said. “It’s a testament to our reputation and commitment to setting the pace for others in sport and entertainment law.”
