Sport Facilities

Our attorneys have a track record of success in obtaining entitlements and negotiating transactional documents for sports stadiums, arenas and surrounding entertainment venues. This work includes entitlement, signage approvals and/or negotiation of transactional documents for several major sports facilities in Southern California – STAPLES Center, Farmers Field, the StubHub Center and Dodgers Stadium – and includes entitlement of training facilities and offices for the LA Galaxy and the Los Angeles Lakers. We assist clients in complying with CEQA requirements for these complex projects (and in successfully defending these documents in court), drafting and negotiating specific plans, sign ordinances and development agreements and other public-private negotiations and entitlements, including ground leases and other real estate agreements.
