In this episode, Peter Ott discusses morals clauses with Kelly Jones. Kelly is Senior Counsel at Under Armour, an apparel and footwear company. She has years of experience negotiating endorsement contracts (among other types of contracts) on both sides of the bargaining table, previously representing athletes and currently representing a company that seeks athlete endorsement of its products. In this interview, she provides insight into why morals clauses exist and how these clauses operate in the “real world.” This discussion covers good contractual drafting and negotiation principles for all lawyers, including sports lawyers.
