OUR STORY

Tracing its history to 2003, Buckner is one of the most distinguished boutique sports law firms in the United States. Founded by attorney Michael L. Buckner, our commitment to providing quality legal services that are responsive, creative and competitively priced has enabled our firm to grow steadily over the years and to offer an ever-increasing collection of legal resources to our sports clients. Our work with higher education, high school, Olympic, amateur, professional and corporate clients on sports-related legal, compliance, regulatory and administrative issues showcases our experience in diverse practice areas: internal investigations; NCAA compliance and investigations; state high school association compliance and investigations; risk management; sports drug testing; sports dispute resolution and arbitration; and corporate governance.

We use carefully crafted teams to attack a case or project; the teams reflect a cross-section of the firm’s skilled attorneys, consultants and affiliated professionals —which include: a former NCAA enforcement investigator; a former private investigator; a former state system chancellor and university president; a former director of athletics; and former athletics administrators. Buckner also offers clients media and strategic communications consulting services provided by contractual agreement and affiliation with Sports Features Communications and Connie Wilson Communications, LLC.

Disclaimer: Buckner consulting services are provided by contractual arrangement and affiliation with third-party consultants. Buckner attorneys and professionals also may provide services through, and may possess a financial interest in, the third-party consultants. The affiliates do not provide legal services. Further, the protection of a client-lawyer relationship does not exist with respect to the third-party consultants' provision of non-legal services to you.
