    Bringing the Islanders to Brooklyn

    Sports practice partners Rich Brand and Steve Cohen served as counsel for the Barclays Center in a deal to move the New York Islanders to the newly opened arena on the corner of Flatbush & Atlantic Avenues. Arent Fox has been a key advisor of Brooklyn Events Center and the Brooklyn Nets in connection with the Barclays Center naming rights transaction, which was the largest arena naming rights and team sponsorship transaction in the history of sports. About 18 months earlier, Rich and Steve served as counsel to the Los Angeles Lakers in connection with the franchise’s new 20-year agreement with Time Warner Cable for rights to distribute all locally available pre-season, regular season, and post-season Lakers games.
