Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Austin, TX- November 18, 2011- The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert includes an article that reports on the ins and outs of sports leagues and why some are more successful than others.

Jordan D. Mamorsky, an attorney at Labaton Sucharow, writes that, “In today’s marketplace, established sports leagues like the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB dominate in terms of viewership, profits, and general popularity. However, many other successful leagues operate in the United States and have developed relationships with communities, created jobs and mobilized fan bases through effective growth strategies.”

Lessons can be learned from these leagues, which have excelled in problem solving, advertising relationships, and continuing profitability despite periods of economic downturns.
