WWE and Vince McMahon’s longtime lawyer Jerry McDevitt is retiring.

He will no longer represent WWE in their antitrust lawsuit against Major League Wrestling. WWE will now be represented by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Warton & Garrison LLP in this lawsuit.

This law firm has also been advising WWE regarding their upcoming merger with UFC later this year.

McDevitt issued the following statement to Wrestlenomics regarding his retirement:

“As you may know, since early 2022 I have been working towards retirement. I had hoped that the Court would again dismiss MLW’s lawsuit as it did the first time.

When it did not, and it became obvious that the case would run into at least 2025 in all probability, I advised my client that I would be wrapping things up by year-end and that it would make sense for them to secure counsel who can go the distance on the case now that discovery will be starting.

There is also the chance that I might be a witness given the allegations. I will be 74 this January and it just seems like the right time to make necessary transitions.

We have worked with Paul Weiss on other matters and they are an excellent firm who I will be helping get up to speed.

It has been a great 36-year run with a great Company and Vince, and I am very proud of all that we accomplished during that time, and I will continue to help them any way I can.”
