Martin Hickman, Executive Director (Retired), Illinois High School Association
For many years, Scott has been the IHSA's attorney when it comes to trademark and related work. During my tenure as the Executive Director, Scott did tremendous work for us and guided us through both complicated and more routine issues. He has a great grasp of this unique area of law and the ability to effectively communicate with his clients. He always had our best interest in mind and was very responsive to our needs and concerns. He is a trusted, bright, and valued partner of ours. I highly recommend him.
Adam Rockoff, Film and Television Producer, Flashrock Films
No matter how complicated my issue, I can always depend on Scott to counsel me professionally and competently. Smart and generous to a fault, Scott has always put my needs above anything else.
Matthew Batt, Founder, Communications Pipeline –and- ParentFeed
Scott is extremely responsive and informative whenever we are in need. Beyond his legal expertise, Scott knows what it means to be a business owner and has become someone I turn to for general business advice on a number of topics and issues. Best of all, when you need a "pit bull," Scott can bark and bite with the best…while also calming your nerves when it’s important to act with a level head. If you are lucky enough to hire Scott, you will quickly realize that you've not only hired solid attorney, but a trusted advisor and all-around great guy.
Brian Bradtke, Athlete Agent, B2 Enterprises
B2 Enterprises has been a long-time client of Scott's and would recommend him to all. He has reviewed and edited many endorsement and sponsorship contracts for our NFL player clientele, while also helping in different lawsuits against various entities. Scott is always on top of his game.
Stuart Card, Founder, Savannah Taste Experience
Scott is not only an incredible wealth of knowledge and skill in sports and entertainment matters, but he has a great mind for business law. Contracts, corporate strategy, intellectual property, risk analysis…you name it, Scott is your best ally. I can't say enough great things about Scott as an expert in sports, entertainment and business legal matters.
Jeff Newman, President (Retired), SFC USA
As the CEO of a company with over 500 professional sports teams and many well-known companies as clients, I always find myself needing legal advice and services "yesterday" or with very little advanced notice. Scott Andresen has always been there when I needed him. I have found him not only to be an excellent attorney, but also to be ultimately personable in dealing with everyone on my staff. I have a level of trust and confidence in Scott that is often reserved for very close friends.
Kiwane Garris, Professional Basketball Player (Retired) and Entrepreneur
I have known through my collegiate and 13-year professional basketball careers. Since my retirement as an athlete, Scott has been a trusted ally in launching my "second career." In addition to creating by 501(c)(3) organization, he has also provided invaluable legal and business counsel in all other aspects of my various entrepreneurial endeavors.
Jeff Birren, General Counsel (Retired), Oakland Raiders
I have known Scott for two decades and always found him to be dedicated, efficient and extremely good at what he does. He is well-respected in the legal profession for his abilities and demeanor alike. If I ever need a lawyer in Chicago, Scott is my first call.
David Cohen, General Counsel, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Scott is a fine lawyer and a great colleague. He represents himself well, is personable, and is very knowledgeable.
Eldon Ham, Attorney, Author, Professor and Radio Personality
I enthusiastically endorse Scott Andresen in the fields of sports, entertainment and related business law. I have known him for years, he knows these areas well, and I have referred clients to him. He has been chair of the Chicago Bar Sports Law Committee, and I have appeared on sports symposiums and panels with Scott. He also teaches sports law at Northwestern University, and he is highly thought of among our peers.
Marc Edelman, Attorney, Author and Professor
Scott and I have served together on numerous sports law panels. In my experience, he is respected for his work by both academics and practitioners. He has a long track record of experience in the sports law field and cares far more about client results than personal accolades. I would recommend him, without hesitation, to my clients that seek Illinois counsel.
Dan Werly, Attorney, Professor and Founder of White Bronco
As a fellow litigation and sports attorney in the Chicagoland area, I have known Scott for several years. He is one of the most respected attorneys in his field and is well-known in the legal community for delivering tremendous results for his clients. As a testament to Scott's ability as an attorney, I would (and have) referred clients to Scott knowing that they would be in good hands.
Jeff Kominsky, Attorney
Scott is not only impressive on paper, but in person as well. He knows what it takes to get a deal done and will make sure that the client comes first. Even though I am in South Florida, I do not hesitate to contact him for guidance in the areas of sports/entertainment law as well as other general business matters. He is truly a professional in every sense of the word.
Kaitlyn Glenn, Attorney
Throughout the years, I have had the privilege of working with Scott on various projects. He is extremely knowledgeable and his profound analytical skills and attention to detail make him one of the most competent attorneys I know. Not only does Scott possess the attributes of a great lawyer, but he is also immensely personable. He is genuine and trustworthy, and I highly recommend him.
