Former MLB Exec Bob DuPuy Rejoins Law Firm Foley & Lardner
Former MLB President & COO Bob DuPuy is rejoining his former law firm, Foley & Lardner, serving as partner with its sports industry practice in N.Y. DuPuy is also joining Evolution Media Capital, CAA's investment banking affiliate, as a senior advisor working on "opportunities across the sports and media spectrum, particularly in the areas of content rights and mergers and acquisitions," according to a company announcement.
DuPuy formerly was a partner with Foley & Lardner, serving as MLB's outside legal counsel beginning in '89 before joining the league in '98. DuPuy was then promoted to President & COO with the league in '02, but resigned last fall amid a falling out with Commissioner Bud Selig. In addition to those professional duties, DuPuy is serving as an adjunct professor at Cornell Univ. Law School, his alma mater.
