Women in Sport

DLA Piper was proud to host the first session in our Media, Sport and Entertainment (MSE) speaker series focused on Women in Sport in our Los Angeles office.

The in-person panel included Gabrielle (Gabby) Reece, American professional volleyball player and sports announcer, and Alanna Frisby Hernandez, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs & Operations, Team Sports at Wasserman Media Group. Reece and Hernandez joined a panel of DLA Piper attorneys to discuss name, image and likeness deals, which are becoming more prevalent in college sports and have a distinct impact on female athletes.

Each event in the new Media, Sport and Entertainment CLE speaker series will take an industry-specific look at the hot topics and trends that are strategically important to the media, sport and entertainment arena today.
