Stadiums & Arenas

KRCL's Stadium Practice Group is unique in that its attorneys have represented almost all major sides to large stadium deals: cities, teams and lenders. In particular, this practice area highlights urban redevelopment and public/private partnerships as cities, private developers, teams, sports leagues, major institutional lenders and the concert industry come together to plan, fund, build and operate the center piece and catalyst for many downtown renewals and expansions. Our attorneys have worked on open air stadiums, enclosed arenas, hybrid stadium/concert facilities and major motor speedways. These transactions span the nation with locations in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, New Jersey, San Diego and Fort Worth. Home Sports in such facilities include Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, NASCAR, Arena Football and major concerts and shows. While many firms with stadium experience have represented only one side (e.g., the city or a team) and worked on a single stadium, attorneys in the Stadium Practice Group have worked on many projects representing different sides in various locations. Therefore, they uniquely understand and can anticipate all parties' needs and final negotiating positions to more easily bring together a successful development, funding and completion.
