New Yankee Stadium Financing and Development

Represented the New York Yankees in the issuance of $960 million of municipal tax-free and taxable bonds by the New York City Industrial Development Agency, which financed the lease and construction of the new Yankee Stadium. We also drafted and negotiated the lease agreement for the new stadium, as well as ancillary real estate agreements pertaining to parking lots and garages; construction, demolition and insurance, and public transportation. We were also integrally involved in navigating the Yankees through the lengthy federal, state and local governmental permit and approval process.
