SCI welcomes the addition of Paul Greene, Esq. to its Advisory Board. The founder of Global Sports Advocates, Greene is one of the country’s leading sports lawyers and is uniquely positioned to advise SCI’s strategic direction. He has worked on sports law issues around the world and is on the list of lawyers for the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, the Sports Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada, and the United States Olympic Committee.
“I am excited to work alongside Josh (SCI Founder) with clients to pursue a best practice approach to resolving disputes in a sensible manner,” says Greene. “I always believe that alternative dispute resolution is the best approach since it allows all parties to resolve a dispute on their own terms.”
“Paul has a tremendous amount of experience to help guide SCI’s thought leadership and strategic direction,” said SCI Founder Joshua Gordon. “We are very glad to have him join the Advisory Board and look forward to working together.”
At Global Sports Advocates, Greene is devoted to the protection of athletes' rights and provides trusted advice on sports regulation, policy, and crisis management. He specializes in representing clients in sports arbitration and litigation including anti-doping, intellectual property, contract, salary, sports injury, sports products liability and mislabeled supplement cases.
Greene has been around the sports industry for many years as an athlete, sportscaster, and now sports lawyer.
“I find the subject matter to be infinitely interesting and relate well to athletes,” said Greene. “I enjoy the challenge of helping clients to rescue themselves from the tight spots they usually find themselves in when they contact me.”
Greene will bring a special focus on Title IX issues to SCI’s umbrella of expertise and services.
“The area of sexual harassment under Title IX is continually evolving,” said Greene. “SCI can have a great impact in advising universities in how to properly comply with the legal requirements of Title IX to best protect the rights of student-athletes and educate those involved to handle delicate situations in the proper way.”
