"Burr & Forman Expands Sports Law Practice,” Nashville Ledger

Articles / Publications

An article published in Nashville Ledger on February 7 announced the expansion of Burr & Forman’s sports law practice to include representation of veteran and rookie NFL players in contract negotiations.

League rules require agents who represent NFL players to be vetted and certified by the NFL Players Association. Burr & Forman lawyers Alex Little and Zack Lawson made the cut in October and are the only NFL Contract Advisors in Tennessee associated with an Am Law 200 law firm.

“Because we’re part of a large law firm, we’re able to offer services to our clients that other agents can’t,” said Burr & Forman Partner Alex Little. “Our size also allows us to treat players’ careers like the business ventures they are. Businessmen want competence and value when they hire advisers. We provide both.”
