Once known for representing the likes of Tom Glavine, David Wells and Luis Gonzalez, sports agent Gregg Clifton is giving up his portfolio of athletes and joining the sports industry practice of labor and employment giant Jackson Lewis to advise individual franchises, leagues and college teams.
Clifton began his legal career at the firm after graduating from Hofstra Law School. Five years later, in 1990, he left the law to work for legendary sports agent Bob Woolf. That was the only way to develop a sports law practice at that time — you had “to be on the representation side of the business,” Clifton says.
