Professional Services

 

We offer exceptional service in:

 

 

Contract Negotiation

It is important to have a team on your side that knows the intricacies of contract negotiation, so that you can maximize your earnings over the course of your career. SSM is that team. We have five experienced attorneys who have negotiated significant player contracts with NFL, CFL, NBA, and NBDL teams. SSM attorneys are knowledgeable, experienced negotiators who will work to obtain the best contract for you, so that you can concentrate on excelling on the field.

Pre-Draft Training

As you well know, your draft position may depend heavily on your performance at the NFL combine, pro day workout, individual workouts and player interviews. SSM will work with you to select the best training, conditioning, speed and nutritional programs to improve your draft position. We will place you with the best combine/pro day trainers in the country. It is up to you to make the most of this opportunity that we provide for you. We recognize that one training facility does not fit every athlete. We make sure that we place you with the trainer that is best for you.

Branding/Endorsements & Marketing

SSM’s professional team will partner with you to capitalize on your image and brand. We will work closely with you to potentially secure endorsement deals, paid appearances and autograph sessions. Utilizing your image and good play on the field, SSM has the experience to help you get paid appearances on radio, TV, and other multimedia outlets. We will use our best efforts to obtain endorsements for you with shoe/apparel, food/beverage, trading cards/sports memorabilia and electronics companies.

Financial Advice/Tax Planning

SSM has an excellent network of financial advisors and tax specialists that can help you with your financial, estate and tax planning needs. These individuals are not employees of SSM. They are our professional partners and they work for you, at your direction. While we make these individuals available to you to provide estate and tax advice/ planning and investment services, you do not have to work with these individuals, if you choose not to. You have the option of working with tax specialists and financial advisors of your own choosing, and we will support your selection. Whichever financial professionals you select, SSM’s goal is to make sure that your money works for you, so that your financial future is secure, long after your playing days are over.

Post-Career Counseling

From the moment you become SSM’s client, we not only focus on how best to improve your draft position, we also begin planning for the day your playing career ends. SSM will assist you with moving into post-career revenue generating opportunities. We can help you start a for-profit or non-profit business, a career in broadcasting, or some other venture that is important to you or your family.
