Womble Carlyle Attorney Helps Concussion Product Company Negotiate Deal, Secure Spokesperson

Having represented professional athletes before, Womble Carlyle attorney George A. Scott Jr. has a special appreciation for the toll a sport can take on a player.gscott

So not surprisingly, Scott has found a way to potentially provide some relief to current and future athletes when it comes to concussions.

Scott, according to his firm, has been assisting Brain Sentry, a company that produces a helmet-mounted monitoring system that helps identify players who have experienced significant impacts to the head.

Reportedly, the Arena Football League will use the Brain Sentry sensors on the helmets of all 480 players in the league. In addition, Brain Sentry is working with the AFL on the league’s concussion task force.

Scott has been counseling Brain Sentry on investment and business partnership deals, according to the firm. For example, Scott closed the company’s first round of investment and helped negotiate the agreement with the AFL.

Recently, Scott introduced Brain Sentry officials to Charles Mann – a former NFL player as well as a client of Scott’s – which led to a relationship between the two. Mann “agreed to become an investor in Brain Sentry and to join the company’s Board of Directors. He also will serve as a celebrity spokesperson for Brain Sentry,” according to the firm.
