(Washington, D.C.) – Daniel Nash, a labor and employment partner at Akin Gump, has been named one of Sports Business Journal’s Power Lawyers.

Nash, the publication notes, is a management-side labor lawyer who has represented the National Football League’s Management Council for more than 25 years. He has been involved with high-profile cases involving the discipline of players such as Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy and Tom Brady.
