Event Ticketing

As a result of the growing importance of live event revenue, issues in event ticketing have become increasingly prevalent. Our Sports team has more than two decades of experience providing legal services related to ticketing.  Our ticketing knowledge is wide-ranging and includes providing advice on legislative and legal matters, internet commerce and the rights and obligations of ticket issuers, buyers and sellers.

Private/Public Partnerships

It has become increasingly apparent that governments at the city, county and state levels across the nation have ongoing revenue issues. Infrastructure costs continue to mount as revenues continue to drop. This creates an opportunity to forge private/public partnerships (P3) -- situations where private sector companies contract with governmental entities to fund and run specific projects. Our attorneys and professionals have counseled clients on both sides of these partnerships, representing the interests of both the private and public sectors in a wide variety of situations.
