Partner Jerry Glover was quoted in an article for the October 23 issue of The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (subscription required) concerning celebrity endorsement contract morals clauses and the Lance Armstrong affair. A morals clause allows a company hiring a celebrity to endorse the company’s goods/services to break the endorsement contract if the celebrity is arrested for a felony or does anything that would bring the company into public disrepute. Glover noted that celebrities can also require a “reverse morals clause” in their endorsement contracts that allows the celebrity to break the contract if the company does anything that would cause a public scandal (think Enron) and, therefore, make the celebrity look bad.
