Sports, Entertainment, and Mixed-Use Development

Our Real Estate attorneys bring years of experience and excellent contacts to both national specialty and big-box users on their mixed-use developments. We regularly provide representation on overseeing development approvals; negotiating entitlement documents with local governments; drafting restrictive covenants and site development agreements with an impressive range of national users; and negotiating and preparing retail leases and financing.

When it comes to sports real estate, you need a total team effort from the initial strategy to project completion — and that is where we can help. Working with our Sports Industry Team, we will work with you to devise a comprehensive strategy that includes advice on all areas of arena development; working with land acquisitions; handling permitting concerns; forming public-private cooperation agreements; helping to secure financing; advising on construction and operations issues; forming partnerships; and negotiating leases and contracts, including negotiating and drafting construction contracts, leases with public bodies, suite license agreements, and concession contracts.

In addition, our attorneys can assist with creative financing structures, including tax-exempt revenue bonds, tax incremental financing districts, business improvement districts, and community development districts.
