Enforcement & Compliance

Arent Fox can help sports clients avoid serious penalty calls.

When there are allegations of bribery, corporate misconduct, corruption, or other high-profile disputes, clients turn to us to handle and resolve their most discreet internal matters in high-stakes situations.

Arent Fox’s government enforcement and white collar attorneys leverage their collective prior government experience and private practice expertise to defend clients in sports-related investigations before various authorities around the globe. In addition, we provide compliance services, including developing compliance programs and conducting risk assessments, trainings, and policy reviews and modifications, and we are well-versed in handling the most sensitive internal investigations. Our group is recognized for managing parallel matters, and our preemptive work can help sports clients significantly limit their exposure to full-scale regulatory proceedings and enforcement actions. Arent Fox’s attorneys are uniquely qualified to monitor, manage, and respond to a myriad of legal crises that arise for clients within the sports industry on the state, national, and global levels. 

Our team includes two former United States Attorneys, a former State Department Official and Presidential Envoy, and scores of former prosecutors. We ensure our clients remain compliant with the various rights, responsibilities, and policies of governing organizations and leagues.
