Message from the Chair, Judith B. Prowda

I am pleased to announce the appointments of Kathleen J. Wu, Esq. and Matthew Pace, Esq. as Co-Chairs with Ayala Deutsch, Esq., of EASL's Sports Law Committee.

While Anthony Dreyer has decided to step down as Co-Chair of the Sports Law Committee after 5 years of service, we are fortunate that he will continue his outstanding leadership in the annual Fordham Sports Law Forum, which has been co-sponsored by EASL for the past 5 years. Anthony is a partner at Skadden where his practice concentrates in all aspects of intellectual property and sports law matters.

Ayala is Senior Vice President & Chief Intellectual Property Counsel of NBA Properties, Inc., the marketing and licensing arm of the National Basketball Association.

Kathleen is a partner at Andrews Kurth and practices out of the firm’s Dallas and New York offices. Kathleen’s practice is concentrated in the areas of real estate, finance and general business transactions. She is also the General Counsel to the United States Tennis Association-Texas Section. Kathleen has received numerous awards, and was recently selected as one of only 30 "Extraordinary Women in Texas Law."

Matthew is Counsel at Herrick Feinstein in the firm’s Sports Law practice. He has over 20 years of professional experience working for and representing some of the biggest players in the sports and entertainment industry. Matthew currently represents sports leagues and teams, sponsors and properties, sports technology companies, investors, licensees and licensors and sports marketing and promotions agencies.

With this first-of-a- kind sports triumvirate - Ayala, Kathleen and Matthew - EASL has a winning team!
