It’s not just about compliance—it’s about building a culture that nurtures and grows the athletes, coaches, and campus communities.  Our consultants are deeply integrated into the ecosystem of college athletics and understand the requirements, the human side, and how to integrate the two successfully. The team is led by Joel Nielsen, a former NCAA Division I, II, and III athletic director, and Kasey Havekost, a practicing attorney and former NCAA Division I athlete with compliance experience at two universities and an athletic conference. 



Our team provides a number of services for athletic departments including:

  • Title IX/Gender Equity reviews and plans
  • Trainings on a variety of athletic-focused topics (hazing, Title IX, sports wagering, NIL, safety and well-being, and others)
  • Personnel risk assessments for hiring coaches and administrators
  • Internal compliance investigations
  • NCAA compliance support
  • Advisement on Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) and esports 
  • Student-athlete eligibility and transfer assistance
  • Policy and procedure reviews (manuals, student-athlete handbooks and team rules)
  • Intellectual property portfolio development and management 
  • Sport sponsorship and reclassification feasibility studies
