11: Ethical Issues for Lawyer-Agents with Jeff Meehan
In this episode, Peter Ott discusses potential ethical issues faced by lawyer-agents in the sports world with Jeff Meehan. Jeff wrote an article about the particular challenges faced by sports agents who are also lawyers that was published in the Spring 2014 edition of the Sports Lawyers Journal entitled “Harvard or Hardball?

These are issues not commonly examined, and Jeff explores them in depth during the course of our discussion and in his article.
