Malik S. Jackson
Malik is an associate in the firm’s litigation and sports litigation departments. As a former student-athlete, educator, and coach, he brings unique, firsthand experience to his sports practice. Malik counsels clients on issues relating to name, image, and likeness (NIL) litigation, administration, and legislation, advising:
- High school athletes with eligibility, recruitment, participation, and other issues relating to NIL as they transition from high school to college sports,
- College and professional athletes with endorsements, media rights and other issues relating to NIL, and
- Companies negotiating group license, cryptocurrency, blockchain deals, and other issues relating to NIL for college and professional athletes.
Clients value Malik’s approachability as well as his intimate knowledge of the athletic and NIL industry, recruiting process, and eligibility requirements.
Malik earned his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University and graduated from the College of Law at Florida A&M University in Orlando. He was a quarterback on Princeton’s NCAA football team, which earned an Ivy League football championship in 2013.
A Jacksonville native, Malik is married to Stephanie, a licensed mental health counselor, one of four siblings, and the son of an attorney and public-school teacher. In his free time, he enjoys reading, working out, spending time with his tight-knit family, and giving back to his hometown. As a teacher between college and law school, he led a boys mentorship group for students at his Title I middle school, and currently mentors local high school students for mock trial.
