The attorneys in Blank Rome’s sports insurance practice handle the full range of insurance issues for our sports industry clients, which include:

  • professional sports teams and associations;

  • professional and amateur athletes.

In addition to providing pre-litigation counseling and representation, our attorneys have extensive experience handling insurance coverage lawsuits and arbitrations on behalf of sports industry clients. Attorneys in our sports insurance practice have helped sports entities obtain coverage for property damage and business interruption losses, event cancellation and postponements, idea submission claims, lawsuits alleging copyright and trademark infringement, and other media, advertising, and marketing liabilities.

Members of our sports insurance practice have also counseled a number of athletes in connection with the purchase of athlete disability and loss-of-value policies. We also have experience successfully represented athletes in connection with claims for coverage under athlete disability, health, and homeowners’ insurance policies.
