Access to specialized Legal Services

With the SMN and FCWSHL offices adjoined, FCWSHL makes available effective legal counsel to the clients of SMN.  The effectiveness stems from FCWSHL’s experience and background in all facets of sports and entertainment law and from working with an array of clients including individuals, teams, sponsors, suppliers, manufacturers, tracks, stadiums, leagues, and sanctioning bodies.  Beyond sports and entertainment law, FCWSHL’s other professional services and capabilities also benefit SMN clients in areas such as business formation, business operation, and estate planning.
