(Overland Park, KS): Bond, Schoeneck & King was highlighted in LJWorld.com’s October 22, 2017 article “KU provides more details of NCAA-mandated basketball review, enlists law firm to help,” by Matt Tait.
The article reads in part:
“Working with the Overland Park-based law firm of Bond, Schoeneck & King – which has a longstanding relationship with KAI and recently helped KU in its high-profile quest to gain eligibility for former KU forward Cheick Diallo in 2015 – a KU spokesman said the review largely will cover the same ground that its compliance department does on a regular basis.”
“In light of the NCAA’s request, we have enlisted them to make sure that we’re doing it the way we need to do it,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said of review assistance from Bond, Schoeneck & King. “We’re not asking them to come in and conduct an examination. We’re going to ask them to help us make sure that we’re doing it correctly and that we dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s.”
