Caruso, Esq., partner and chair of the Sports, Media & Entertainment Law Group of Scarinci Hollenbeck LLC, appeared on the FOX Business Network with Host Stuart Varney in New York City on February 5, 2014. Mr. Caruso offered his legal insight on Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman, as well as professional sports contracts and endorsement deals in general.
NFL player Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks gained notoriety after his heated rant on live TV at the conclusion of the NFC Championship game on January 19th. An immediate backlash from fans watching the live interview took to social media and seemingly casted a negative view about his image. However, Anthony Caruso noted that post interview damage control was successful. “His value as a player and for potential endorsements increased tremendously”, says Caruso. “While tenuous at first, he appears to have gained significant endorsement deals from his post interview brand polishing.”
Anthony Caruso is uniquely positioned to comment on such a high profile controversies because of his extensive experience in sports, business and entertainment deals. As a prominent sports, media, & entertainment attorney based in the New York City / New Jersey area, he previously founded and served as legal counsel to a new sports league, where he later became the commissioner. He is also a former sports agent and currently teaches sports law at NYU. He gained international attention in his representation of Miss New Jersey 2007 regarding a blackmail situation. Mr. Caruso provided all legal counseling and negotiations, strategy, media supervision, and crisis management in that case. He has appeared on many major television networks and radio stations, and is routinely requested by the media for his advice and views on current legal issues.
