Apr 30, 2014, 19:02 ET from Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP

NEW YORK, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to press inquiries, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP and Hausfeld LLP confirmed that the two firms' announcement that they will work together to represent professional athletes is limited to the representation of professional athletes and does not include the representation of college athletes.  Recent events concerning ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers and the commendable actions this week by the Commissioner against Donald Sterling illustrate the need for legal advice for professional players.  Players can and have asserted their own power this week in response to the reprehensible comments of Donald Sterling.  NBA players in making these decisions require and deserve the same expert legal advice as the Commissioner received so that they can continue to make their own strong and innovative responses to breaking events.
