Eric Fishman Advises Kevin Durant in ‘Call of Duty’ Multiplayer Deal

Earlier this month, ‘Call of Duty’ announced that Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant will be featured as an Operator skin in Season 03 Reloaded of "Modern Warfare 2" and "Warzone 2.0." Players of the popular game can purchase the two-time NBA champion’s appearance as part of a limited-time store bundle. The deal was negotiated by ArentFox Schiff Partner Eric Fishman, who acts as counsel to Durant and his Boardroom business.

‘Call of Duty’ revealed the news in a tweet that showcased the character descending via parachute, basketball in hand. The bundle also includes weapon skins that reference Durant’s nicknames, as well as a unique finishing move and other cosmetics.
