In articles addressing the logistical challenges of postponing the 2020 Olympic Games, Slate Magazine and the Tokyo Daily News quoted Irwin Kishner, co-chair of Herrick's Sports Law Group, regarding the massive mobilization of coordinated efforts to reschedule the competition. The article focuses on a number of issues faced by the Olympic Organizing Committee, including the renegotiation of the sponsorship contracts. “How major sponsors will be paid and making sure they are satisfied with what they will receive, compared to what they had previously bargained for in these agreements, is a major consideration,” said Kishner.
