Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Robert Batterman, senior member of the Sports Law Group at Proskauer Rose LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about his representation of the National Hockey League during recent negotiations with its players' union to form a 10-year collective bargaining agreement, the longest in NHL history. The league and the National Hockey League Players' Association approved the contract's framework in January to begin a lockout-shortened season. Batterman, who similarly serves as labor counsel for the National Football League and Major League Soccer, also discusses in this "Rainmakers" episode the "economically justifiable" reasons for lockouts this round in the NHL, NFL and NBA.
