Bryant Miller Olive’s Duane Draper develops niche as public finance counsel for deals that fund professional sports facilities

Bryant Miller Olive is developing a significant niche as Bond and Public Finance Counsel for deals that fund professional sports facilities. As three examples, the law firm has helped facilitate financing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ football stadium, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s hockey arena and the New York Yankees’ spring training facility in Tampa.

Reflecting this trend, BMO was recently selected to provide public finance counsel for two more baseball spring training facilities in west-central Florida:

  • Bond and disclosure counsel for a new $75.4 million spring training facility planned by the Atlanta Braves in Sarasota County.
  • Bond and special counsel for an $81 million renovation to the spring training home of the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin.
