Harvard Law School Panel on Acquiring a Sports Franchise

The Harvard Law School Committee on Sports and Entertainment Law will be hosting a panel tomorrow (Monday, April 14) at 7:30 p.m. in Hauser 102 entitled "Acquiring a Sports Franchise." (directions to Harvard Law School/campus map).

Panelists include three transacation attorneys:

Adam Klein from Katten Muchin Rosenman

Larry Silverstein from Bingham McCutchen

Jon Bernstein from Bingham McCutchen.

Additionally, Bradley Rangell from Citibank and Tony Tavares, CEO of Sports Properties Acquisition Corp., will be speaking.

The event is open to the public. For additional information, please contact the Committee's president, Mike Menitove.


How to acquire a sports franchise? Don't bother with this seminar, I can tell you how:

Have money. Lots of money.

(But seriously - there are so few franchises for sale that I don't quite see the point in holding a seminar on the topic).

I'm a bit surprised this is at their law school and not the biz school. But I think it'd be an interesting panel. A lot of the information you need to buy a sports franchise is probably relevant to anyone who might be looking at a career in finance, sports business or sports law. I think it's worth learning how complex deals like this get made, even if you don't have the $1 billion needed to buy a franchise.
