Sports arenas and stadiums are complex, high-profile projects that receive intense scrutiny from multiple constituents. Legal advisors on these projects must have special skill and experience to navigate the politically sensitive projects with dexterity.
Husch Blackwell has that knowledge. The firm’s work with public-private partnerships (P3) and our deal-making and development capabilities have served our clients well in sports facility deals across the United States. Our Arena & Stadium Development team structures, negotiates and documents deals, and does so quickly and efficiently.
Our attorneys enjoy collaborating with teams from the other professional service firms frequently involved in these projects, including architectural, engineering, construction, financial services, legal and sports advisory firms. We handle matters involving funding, design, development, eminent domain, concessions, parking, real estate and leasing (including suite licensing), special events contracts, operations and naming rights. We also have experience with lobbying and interacting with state and local governments.
Our arena and stadium experience spans all five major sports leagues:
MLB (including minor league affiliates)
NHL (and ECHL)
