ON-DEMAND SPORTS COUNSEL
Sievert Legal is an innovative approach to legal services for sports industry clients. With substantial experience serving professional sports teams, college and university athletics departments and industry businesses, we provide services at a fraction of the cost when compared to hiring additional attorneys for your in-house team or relying on outside counsel.
The clients we work with typically fall into three categories:
Clients without or with limited in-house legal staffing that need ongoing legal support but don't want to hire a full-time in-house attorney or pay big law rates.
Clients with an in-house legal team that require on-demand overflow work assistance on an as-needed basis.
Clients who require demonstrated expertise in a niche industry-specific area.

Whether you need a part-time extension to your in-house team, or whether you only need us sporadically when resources are overtaxed, you can count on us to ensure quality work is completed in an efficient manner.
To accomplish the above, we use various types of fee arrangements specific to each relationship. These include hourly rates, flat-rates for set hours or projects, and subscription-based services.
The one common denominator with any of our approaches is your organization will pay a fraction of the cost when compared to hiring additional in-house attorneys or relying on other firms with comparable expertise.
