An All-Star Alum on His Career in Sports Law
Bruce Meyer is the Deputy Executive Director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, leading the union in negotiations with the League. He’s received noteworthy media coverage, including for representing MLB players during the 2022 lockout and, most recently, reaching a historic collective bargaining agreement for minor league players. Bruce spent 30 years at Weil as a litigator, where he was integral to our sports labor practice and Complex Commercial Litigation group.
In this edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, David Lender – Co-Chair of our global Litigation Department and a member of Weil’s Management Committee – speaks with Bruce about how his background as a Weil partner prepared him for his role representing one of the strongest professional players associations. Bruce also discusses what it’s like to negotiate a massive collective bargaining agreement and what lies ahead for baseball and the MLBPA in the coming years.
