Alessia Grossi has been certified by the NLLPA as a Regional Attorney


 

Delegated by the National Lacrosse League Players' Association (NLLPA), Regional Attorneys have the authority to negotiate playing and endorsement contracts on behalf of professional lacrosse players. Alessia is the first female lawyer to join the NLLPA's roster of Regional Attorneys


Grossi said she is "excited to have the opportunity to begin working in the sports industry, particularly with a sport as integral to our country as lacrosse is. I can't wait to get started and look forward to representing the players."


Alessia is an associate in the firm's Labour, Employment and Sports groups, where she is developing her practice litigating and advising on a broad range of employment issues, including wrongful dismissals, breach of restrictive covenants, executive compensation, and Human Rights Code violations. 


As a law student at Queen's University, Alessia was active in student government and was an executive member of various clubs, including the Queen's Law Cancer Society and Queen's Law Sports and Entertainment Society. 


Alessia's certification by the NLLPA is another step in increasing women's representation in the business side of sports. We are proud of Alessia, and we are confident that she will be a great asset to the National Lacrosse League Players' Association and its members.
