Abdul-Jalil negotiated a series of contracts that included many unprecedented benefits to the individual clients, one of which was interest-free loans that could be forgiven. Upon review by the Internal Revenue Service, the contracts and returns where thrown out and challenged by the IRS as the IRS filed suit. After an 8 year legal battle, he prevailed in Federal Tax Court and established that Interest free Loans where in fact legal. This unprecedented legal ruling was established as a standard in the Tax Laws and was written in several National Law Journals. Cite: “IRS vs Al-Hakim” published by Commerce Clearing House(CCH) Tax Court Memorandum Cases editions KF 6234A 505 and Maxwell McMillian (Prentice Hall) Federal Tax Cases edition KF 6234A 512 Tax Court Memorandum Decisions. Articles and citations available upon request….
The Historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872  Ruling
After al-Hakim’s victory in the Federal Tax Courts against the Tax Commissioner, in
December 2000 the IRS moved to change the Tax Codes with the historic “al-Hakim” Tax Code §7872  Ruling. The IRS changed the Federal Tax Codes such that it now “prevents no-interest loans” and was instituted to eliminate and close the Federal Income Tax loop-hole created with al-Hakim’s use of interest free loans in sports and entertainment financial transactions.
CITE: Tax Notes, Dec. 4, 2000, p. 1311; 89 Tax Notes 1311 (Dec. 4, 2000) “al-Hakim Tax Code” Ruling
al-Hakim’s victory in the Federal Tax Court over the U. S. Tax Commissioner has the nations foremost academic institutions and academians in the study of Law and Business teaching al-Hakim’s use of interest free loans in Tax Free financial transactions as part of the Law and Business curiculum in such hallowed halls as Harvard University, Yale University,Washington University, Stanford University, University of Virginia, and Wake Forest University Schools of Law Federal Tax Courses, among others.
He negotiated a professional Baseball contract for a rookie player that contained several special clauses and one that allowed him to declare himself a “Free Agent” in the middle of the season if he was dissatisfied with his playing time. The National Baseball League President ruled against the clause citing that “it contained provisions inconsistent with the Reserve System Articles of the new Basic Labor Agreement” and threw it out, whereupon he took the case to arbitration. He prevailed in this case of unprecedented legal rights benefits and it was hailed by the Director of the Players Union, Marvin Miller, as “the single greatest advancement of player rights in baseball history and as valuable as any inherent rights in the Major League Players current Basic Labor Agreement.” This clause became the industry standard and was the example distributed to all other representatives by the Players Union to be included in their contracts. Cite: Arbitration Decision No.32 in the matter of “The Major Leagues of Professional Baseball Clubs (Atlanta Braves) vs. The Major League Baseball Players Association (Alvin Jr. Moore)”, Sept. 7, 1977.
1978- The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor). In an unprecedented case in Professional Basketball he negotiated an addendum to the contract and represented the player in a dispute of the contract that was originally negotiated by the players union director. The inherent problems that this situation provided for the National Basketball Association, the Denver Nuggets, and most importantly the Director of the NBA Players Union and the Union itself, were incredible. In mid-season the team breached the contract with a late payment that triggered a clause in the addendum that allowed him to opt out of the contract. The player withheld his services in the middle of the season and the team filed for arbitration. In prevailing in this matter the player received his pay, was declared free of his contract (“a Free Agent”), and allowed to negotiate a new contract with the team of his choice. Cite Arbitration Decision in the matter of “The National Basketball Association (Denver Nuggets) vs. The National Basketball Players Association (Brian Taylor)”, Jan. 25, 1978
2010- Abdul-Jalil was honored in Miami, Florida and Haiti, for the Relief Missions to Arch Bishop Joel Jeune of Grace Village in Haiti
they received from the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, Stepping Together and Superstar Management with recognition of The World Conference of Mayors (WCM) and The National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM). This is a tangible reality of SUCCESS in Haiti for ALL the members of the organizations world-wide rather than the many idle cocktail party rants and raves of projects that exist without any substance behind them!

Our HISTORIC Hammer “Rap-The-Vote Concert Series” Secured Re-Election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin AND Spawned Rise of Vladamir Putin to Power!
“As long as there are reformers in the Russian Federation and the other states leading the journey toward democracy’s horizon, our strategy must be to support them. And our place must be at their side.” -President Bill Clinton on the re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin in 1995-
This 1995 event is a WORLD HISTORIC perspective about how our “WORLD ALTERING” Urban-American, western style, political campaign strategy utilizing M. C. Hammer in a “Rap-The-Vote Concert Series” secured the 18-45 voter turnout and the re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin in 1995 with the “Our Home Is Russia” (NDR), a Russian liberal political party. Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim devised a strategic plan, executive produced, produced, filmed and broadcast on Russian National TV a series of concerts in St. Petersburg, Moscow, and the WORLD. This campaign tactic was their most effective strategy, greatest strength- uniquely different and vastly superior to anything Russia had ever witnessed. This comprehensive, targeted attack with our expertise well grounded in modern focused campaigning strategy, advertising, marketing, and promotions was trumpeted for saving Russian democracy with Yeltsin’s re-election ensuring continuity in the Democratic evolution of Russia and securing world peace. The television programming was so successful that it has regularly run on air since 1995!
At the time we began our concerts and campaign events over the weeks in St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin was then Deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, organized the St. Petersburg branch of the Party Our Home Is Russia, was it’s Chairman, and led the campaign issue of the party in the elections to the Duma that led to his rise to power and being named President of Russia by Boris Yeltsin.
This strategy was trumpeted for saving Russian democracy with Yeltsin’s re-election ensuring continuity in the Democratic evolution of Russia and securing world peace!
This strategy was heralded world wide by political pundits as “incredibly brilliant”, a “triumph for democratic reform” and “universally invaluable” in it’s effect of having “saved” Russian democracy, as Yeltsin was the only alternative in ensuring continuity in the evolution of Russia and securing world peace.
This coup, a miraculous event in history, was depicted and canonized in the 2004 film “Spinning Boris” starring Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber.
“Spinning Boris” The Best President of Russia America Ever Had ..L. A. Times Review
Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber star as a trio of elite American political campaign operatives who were hired in secret to manage Russian President Boris Yeltsin’s election campaign in 1996. He’s polling at 6 percent with the election a few months away. First, they must get someone’s attention; they succeed finally with Yeltsin’s daughter, then it’s polling, focus groups, messages and spin. Even as Yeltsin’s numbers go up, they are unsure who hired them and if Yeltsin’s allies have a different plan in mind than victory. When the going gets toughest, they put a spin on their stake: democracy and capitalism must win. They orchestrate the most spectacular political comeback of the twentieth century – as they “sold” Boris Yeltsin to the Russian public gaining Yeltsin’s successful re-election.
Excerpts of the Re-election of Russian President Boris Yeltsin in “Clinton Secrets”, a book by JOHN DIAMOND, Associated Press Writer
The campaign tactic was their most effective strategy, greatest strength- uniquely different and vastly superior to anything Russia had ever witnessed. This strategic plan with our expertise well grounded in modern American campaigning got Yeltsin re-elected. This was simply a matter of fact that he was the best the modern world could get compared to the alternative communist and he was fully supported by the U.S.
A State Department memorandum, marked “confidential,’’ summarized then President Bill Clinton’s meeting with Yeltsin at a summit in Egypt, where Clinton told Yeltsin he ”wanted to make sure that everything the United States did would have a positive impact and nothing should have a negative impact’’ on Yeltsin’s re-election. The memo added the U. S. wanted an upcoming summit with the Russian leader to be successful to “reinforce everything that Yeltsin had done.’’

What is an Agent, Artist and Business Manager and Why do I need One?
Entertainment law, the art of representing professional athletes and entertainers, is the body of law and legal principles that has developed and evolved in the course of conducting the businesses of and representation of professionals in the fields of Sports, Music, Entertainment, Publishing, Motion Picture, Television, Theater, Interactive Multimedia, and the Internet.
Each of these entities has its own unique features and characteristics in common with the others but consists of a wide variety of legal concepts, rules, statutes, regulations, case law, practices, customs, and legal principles which have a particular application to the creation, production, distribution, and marketing of sports and entertainment intellectual properties.
Each branch of the sports and entertainment industry is generally dominated by a small number of larger multi-national organizations being provided entertainment product by large numbers of individuals and smaller companies. Because of this concentration of power, there is a great emphasis on politics and personal relationships in the sports and entertainment industry. As with all other areas of the entertainment industry, the Sports business is dominated by a few powerful companies and personalities that control the creation , production, distribution and marketing – the legal rights to the commercial exploitation of the sports entertainment product.
The sports and entertainment industries, as specialized areas, are composed of many sub-divisions to benefit and enrich an athlete including product endorsements, commercial ads, corporate sponsorships, personal appearances, acting, recording, publishing, concert promotion, talent management, and merchandising. The primary ones are the selling of sports, television, radio, motion picture, and advertising products as well as multimedia, music recording and literary publishing.
Due to the subjective and creative nature of pro sports, and because of the degree of control by the few, the sports agent and business manager must know how the various sports operates and it’s personalities, the customs and practices, and how ones unique talents and abilities and rights are obtained, and protected legally for optimum commercial exploitation for the player. Most importantly, a good sports agent and business manager must have strong contacts and relationships with key people in the sports and entertainment industry, and must have a good reputation.
SSM has handled everything from contract negotiations, arbitrations, salary grievances, booking, production, management, recording, publishing, distribution, merchandising, licensing, to representation in copyright matters, royalty disputes, and an array of sports and entertainment issues and problems, with an emphasis on the sports and music industry. Among those business matters we handle include:
