Conflicts of interest in sports and entertainment law

In Florida, it is common for athletes and entertainers to seek help from attorneys and agents to represent their interests. While most attorneys place their clients' interests first, some lawyers fail to do so and engage in malpractice. If you have been the victim of legal malpractice by a sports and entertainment attorney, you may have legal rights to recover compensation through a professional malpractice lawsuit.

Attorneys may not engage in conduct that would amount to a conflict of interest. For example, when a lawyer represents multiple athletes on the same team, the interests of one athlete might conflict with those of another. This issue might arise when an attorney negotiates a high salary for one client that results in another client suffering a salary reduction or being forced to leave.

An attorney who practices entertainment law must also avoid conflicts of interest. These might occur when a single lawyer represents several members of a band. When the interests of one client may conflict with those of another, problems may arise. Attorneys should studiously avoid potential conflicts of interest when they represent clients.

At St. Denis & Davy, our experienced professional malpractice lawyers represent people who have been harmed by the legal malpractice of their attorneys on sports and entertainment. We help our clients to file lawsuits to help them recover compensation for their losses. Our attorneys are often able to negotiate settlements that fairly compensate our clients. In some cases, our lawyers litigate for our clients during trials to try to secure favorable verdicts. If you believe that you have suffered harm because of the negligence of a sports and entertainment lawyer, you might want to read the information that we have made available on our Legal Malpractice Lawpage.
