Alex Rodriguez hired the law firm of Gordon & Rees to try and help overturn his Biogenesis doping suspension.This legal effort allegedly accumulated $380,000of unpaid attorney fees.On Monday, Gordon & Rees filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that Rodriguez owes them their fees. This 12-page complaint alleges Zack Wheeler Jersey that Rodriguez admitted that his advisor at Roc Nation, Desiree Perez, advised him to not pay the fees. If these facts are true, do Gordon & Rees have legal standing to file a lawsuit against Roc Nation for tortuous interference with a busine s contract?MORE HAYNES: For Gordon & Rees to prevail on a claim for tortious interference with a contract against Roc Nation, Will Middlebrooks Jersey there are several elements that must be met. These elements are:1. The existence of a valid contract between the plaintiff and a third party;2.The defendant's knowledge of the contract;3. The defendant's intentional procurement of the third-party's breach of the contract without justification;4. Actual breach of the contract; and5. Damages resulting therefrom.Here, there was a valid contract between Rodriguez and the law firm. Further, it can be a sumed that Perez had knowledge of this contract between Rodriguez and the law J. T. Realmuto Jersey firm. Next, if Rodriguez did in fact receive advisement from Roc Nation to intentionally breach his contract, this third element is met. Lastly, if Rodriguez breached this contract based upon this advisement from Roc Nation, damages are apparent in unpaid attorney fees.It seems as if Gordon & Rees has legal grounds to bring such a claim against Roc Nation if the facts taken in the complaint are true. However, Roc Nation may have some justification in advising Rodriguez not to pay, if it advised him on this matter Jay Bruce Jersey at all. A spokesperson for Rodriguez stated, There are additional fees being sought from hours that continued to be billed and are the source of the disagreement between the parties. If Rodriguez breached this contract based upon the dispute of the validity of these additional fees, this advisement to withhold Maikel Franco Jersey payment may be justifiable.Most likely, this dispute will be settled outside of the courtroom for an amount le s than what is owed. However, if it does not settle, the law firm may go after Roc Nation.Benjamin C. Haynes is a partner at the law firm of in Orlando, Florida, and a contributor for Sporting News. Follow him on
