Robinson & Cole Confirms Interest in Sports Agent Business

The law firm of Robinson & Cole has confirmed that it is considering an attempt to enter the sports agent business – a story first posted on Connecticut Sports Law on July 21. 

In an article published in the Connecticut Law Tribune, the firm’s recruitment of former UConn basketball player Brittany Hunter was explained as part of a plan to build a sports agency specializing in the representation of women basketball players.

Hunter, however, decided to accept an assistant coach position at Temple.  Robinson & Cole is nevertheless considering entering the sports business:

Even though this has gone in a different direction  because of Brittany’s coaching career, the idea is more prominent on our radar screen .  -Eric Daniels, Managing Partner, Robinson & Cole

A sports practice at Robinson & Cole will be largely based on the connections of associate attorney Kevin Henry.  I know Henry to have a passion for the business of sports, particularly on the agent side.  Not only is he well connected, but Henry has enthusiasm to spare for this venture.

Robinson & Cole, if it decides to throw its hat into the agent ring, faces an uphill battle.  But the firm possesses more than enough resources.  Perhaps more importantly, in Henry the firm has a person with the ability and willingness to drive the effort.
