From Skadden to Octagon – Scott Gaffield

CABA member Scott Gaffield (Yale, USC, UCLA) has left the Los Angeles office of Skadden Arps to join Octagon as Senior Counsel. Octagon is the world’s largest sponsorship consulting practice and a pioneer and leader in athlete and personality representation and management. With more than 900 employees globally, Octagon manages/influences billions in worldwide sponsorship rights fees and activation and works with hundreds of blue-chip corporate clients, more than 800 Athletes & Personalities clients, and manages more than 5,000 events per year. Leading stakeholders in the sports and entertainment world continue to look to Octagon to provide leadership in understanding fans’ passions and how these insights can build more effective, efficient and measureable marketing programs.

Scott is also a volunteer consultant at the nonprofit organization Bizroots, Inc. which helps inner-city entrepreneurs build, grow and develop successful businesses in the L.A. area.

On behalf of the Canadian American Bar Association – and as a fellow Skadden alumnus – we wish Scott the best in his new career.
