New York partner Frank Saviano has been named a Sports/Gaming/Entertainment Trailblazer by the National Law Journal. The award recognizes legal leaders in the sports and entertainment industry.
In his published profile, Saviano was asked about his work in the field of sport and noted: “I am excited to see how deals and transaction have become much more complex – deals that were once simpler licensing or commercial deals have now morphed in complex M&A deals with cutting-edge intellectual property issues. It’s also an exciting time in the industry with increasing franchise values as we see the US sports leagues permit private equity investments, which is attracting a lot of interest and bringing new entrants and fresh perspectives into that space.”
Saviano, a member of the firm’s Entertainment, Sports & Media Practice, maintains a broad sports media practice advising major sports leagues, teams, and team owners, as well as private equity firms, financial institutions, and media networks in the full spectrum of M&A, joint venture, strategic investment, and media rights and licensing matters.
