Washington’s NFL team has hired D.C. attorney Beth Wilkinson of Wilkinson Walsh LLP to review the organization’s protocols, including its culture, policies and allegations of workplace misconduct, Wilkinson confirmed in a statement on Thursday.
Wilkinson has represented the NFL in a lawsuit challenging the league’s Sunday Ticket Package and has also successfully represented the NCAA and Major League Baseball in class-action suits.
While Wilkinson is expected to conduct a deep dive into the organization’s past culture, team officials are highly upset and frustrated about ongoing online speculation, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Sources told Schefter that the Washington Post is preparing a story about the team that is expected to highlight the culture that existed and some of the problems that were created.
Within the past week, front-office members Richard Mann III and Alex Santos, as well as radio play-by-play voice Larry Michael, left the organization.
It has been reported that three minority shareholders are seeking to sell their interests in the team. The minority shareholders have hired the investment bank Moag & Company to vet buyers, a league source told Schefter.
