In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Brandon Leopoldus. Brandon Leopoldus is a California-based attorney for people and companies in the public eye.

Mr. Leopoldus’ sports practice has included representing more than three-dozen individuals working in high level, Olympic, and professional sports including Olympians, professional/retired athletes, and sports officials.  Some of his highlights have included representing a two-time NFL All-Pro with his off-field endeavors, protecting and enforcing the intellectual property rights of an 8-year NBA veteran, negotiating a purchase of sports officiating assigning business, developing the structure of a  training facility for a Major League Baseball All-Star, and advising numerous top-tier collegiate athletes entering the draft.

As a recognized leader in sports law, Mr. Leopoldus is a featured speaker and panelist across the country, including video Continuing Legal Education presentations, guest lectures at numerous law schools, and panels at the Sports Lawyers Association’s (SLA) Annual Conference.  Mr. Leopoldus is a featured contributor to Referee Magazine and Legal Ink Magazine, and has been featured in Sellebrity Magazine and Ready Magazine and has been widely acclaimed for his LinkedIn Video Series focused on sports law and business topics.  In 2014, Mr. Leopoldus was recognized as the SLA’s Regional Captain of the Year, and in 2015 and 2016 he was named the SLA’s Co-Regional Captain of the Year.

Mr. Leopoldus is a member of the California Bar Association; the Sports Lawyers Association; the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association;  Partner, Sports, and Entertainment Society; and the co-founder of FUEL – an invite-only networking and mastermind community for those working with athlete, celebrity, high-net-worth, and ultra-high-net-worth clients.

Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Leopoldus spent many years in Minor League Baseball as an umpire. 

In his spare time, Leopoldus enjoys spending time with his friends and family, including his incredibly smart dog, Harvey – named after Hall of Fame umpire Doug Harvey.
