Attorneys Experienced in Sports Law
Fraser Stryker has extensive experience and a unique integration across the disciplines of sports law. We have represented venues, users and teams, owners, and even a league. Our arena, stadium, and facility clients have been highly successful in managing their operations while experiencing minimal disputes or litigation with their customers and vendors.
We are especially proud of our ability and experience in leading successful public-private partnerships in the development of major community sports and entertainment facilities. We have a keen understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the traditional public sector ownership and management of venues, and the huge opportunity presented today by private-sector leadership, management, and especially financial contribution to these civic projects.
Fraser Stryker lawyers bring together the diverse aspects of sports law, including government affairs, financing, specialty contracts, intellectual property, real estate and construction law, event hosting, and governance.
Sports management projects have included:
- Structuring of the public-private partnerships in Omaha which developed and today govern Omaha’s modern sports arena, convention center, baseball stadium, major sporting events, our world-class zoo, and several museums.
- Facility use and development agreements
- Licensing agreements
- Facility management
- Naming rights, sponsorship, and marketing arrangements
- Food service agreements
- Premium seat licenses
- Event ‘hosting’ contracts, including the NCAA’s® 25-year commitment to playing the Men’s College World Series® in Omaha; the U.S. Olympic Team Trials–Swimming, held in Omaha in 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020 (held in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions); and the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
