Church Church Hittle + Antrim (CCHA) is pleased to welcome Todd Shumaker to the firm’s Sports Law group.

His practice focuses primarily on collegiate sports and includes representing clients in the NCAA infractions process, as well as educating and presenting on NCAA topics to athletics administrators, coaches and student-athletes.

“Todd has a wealth of knowledge from his experience with the NCAA enforcement staff on NCAA infractions matters that our clients will benefit from greatly,” said CCHA Sports Law Partner Kelleigh Fagan.

Before joining CCHA, Todd spent seven and half years with the enforcement staff at the NCAA where he investigated and processed violations of NCAA rules across Divisions I, II and III as an associate director and, more recently, helped develop processes and procedures related to the Independent Accountability Resolution Process. During his time with the NCAA, Todd also sat as an appeals panelist for USA Basketball, served as a liaison to the NCAA Board of Governors Student-Athlete Engagement Committee and the Division II Enforcement and Infractions Task Force and helped lead diversity, equity and inclusion efforts as chair of the Enforcement Inclusion Guiding Team and as a member of the LGBTQ-A+ Employee Engagement Group leadership team. From 2007 to 2013, Todd was an attorney and Chief Compliance Officer with the Indiana Office of Inspector General and State Ethics Commission where he assisted in public corruption investigations and adjudicated ethics violations.

“I look forward to assisting our collegiate clients with a myriad of sports-related issues and challenges.” said Shumaker. “I believe the CCHA Sports Law team provides the highest level of investigative knowledge, guidance, and advocacy for their clients and I look forward to being a part of that.”

CCHA Sports Law has significant experience representing institutions and individuals in the NCAA infractions process and proactively advises and educates institutions on complex NCAA compliance areas.

Todd lives in Indianapolis with his wife, Heather, their son Kameron, daughter Maddie and a rotating menagerie of cats, dogs, fish, bunnies and chickens.
