Knowing the law and how it applies to your industry has always been paramount, but in today’s times, the importance of good and solid reputation is mandatory. Having an attorney that is not only experienced, but knowledgeable in your specific area of need will save you from unnecessary financial difficulty.
The McGriff Firm specializes in the areas of:
NAME, IMAGE AND LIKENESS (NIL)
In June of 2021, the NCAA reversed a rule that will now give all incoming and current NCAA athletes, in all sports, the ability to profit off of their name, image and likeness (NIL). This landmark decision will have a huge implications on the financial lives and futures of college athletes. With this new change comes new rules, laws and regulations. If you are a college athlete, or any individual that needs representation as it pertains to your NIL, then the experience of David McGriff will guide you through this complicated process.
SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT LAW
As with most areas of the law, sports and entertainment require a specific knowledge base to adequately represent you. Having represented many professionals in this area, The McGriff Firm has garnered a reputation for resolving multilayered legal issues for their clients. An athlete’s career has a limited shelf life and requires pinpointed representation to ensure one’s financial future is secure. Similar to athletics, a career in entertainment can be a legal balancing act, which can only be adequately handled by an attorney with experience in the industry.
The McGriff Firm’s clients include Amon-Ra St. Brown (Detroit Lions), Equanimeous St. Brown (Chicago Bears), Elijah Stewart (USC/Cluj of Romanian Liga National Team/Big 3), Johnny Juzang (UCLA/Utah Jazz), 03 Greedo (Alamo/Sony), Ervin “EP” Pope (2x Grammy Winning, Multi-Platinum Record Producer), KingsMostWanted (Vydia), Maez301 (Furnace Entertainment/Strange Music) and 8PETOWN Records.
This vast and broad area of the law is essential to the operation and efficiency of any corporation. Corporations are subject to many rules and regulations that can be very layered and complicated. Not being in compliance and having a lack of understanding of your legal rights often results in a loss of revenue and wasted energy. Protecting yourself against unwarranted lawsuits and staying in the good graces of state regulations, can be the difference between your company thriving and possibly closing its doors.
EMPLOYMENT LAW/CIVIL RIGHTS
Although the state of California has many regulations to protect the average employer, there are many situations that arise where the expertise of an employment lawyer is needed. From wrongful termination to sexual harassment, these situations require legal counsel immediately. Allowing these situations to be left up chance, often means the case ends in favor of the employee. With over 10 million dollars collected in settlements for his clients at his previous firm, David McGriff has the knowledge and legal relationships to resolve your employment legalities in a manner that will be beneficial to you.
Every person holds certain freedoms and rights, which includes fair and equal treatment by law enforcement, freedom from discrimination in the workplace, and equal access to services, public education and housing. When such rights are violated, The McGriff Firm can get you the justice to which you are entitled.
