NEW YORK -- On Tuesday, Major League Baseball Players Association executive director Michael Weiner announced that Matt Nussbaum has been hired by the MLBPA as an assistant general counsel.
Nussbaum, 32, joins the MLBPA after spending the past three years as an associate general counsel for the National Hockey League Players Association (NHLPA). Prior to joining the NHLPA, Nussbaum spent two and a half years as an associate in the litigation and corporate criminal investigations department in the Chicago office of international law firm Jones Day and one year as a law clerk to federal district court Judge Edward F. Harrington in Boston.
“We’re happy to add Matt to our staff. I’m confident his experience in labor relations and enforcement of players’ rights will serve the MLBPA membership well,” said Weiner.
A South Bend, Ind., native, and a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (2000) and Notre Dame Law School (2004), Nussbaum and his wife, Lauren, have one daughter.
