Herrick represents a diverse group of franchises (including half a dozen of the major NY area teams), agencies, and promotional and memorabilia companies. We also represent investor groups interested in acquiring Major League Baseball, minor league baseball, National Hockey League and National Basketball Association franchises. We can guide you through all legal aspects of your transactions, which will include not only entertainment and sports law issues, but also corporate, tax, securities, copyright, trademark and regulatory aspects. And to help make sure your transaction is a winner, you can count on our strong litigation and governmental relations capabilities.
In addition to transactional representation, we also provide ongoing general counsel-related services to certain of our clients, such as boxing promoter Top Rank. Examples of this work include player/personnel-related issues, working capital arrangements, concession agreements, advertising contracts, and title sponsorships of professional sporting events.
