June 27, 2016

Sports Business Journal named Gibson Dunn a “Premier” Sports Law practice in its Power Players: Outside Counsel [PDF] feature. SBJ noted that the “team at Gibson Dunn doesn’t shy from the spotlight” and highlighted Washington, D.C. partners Andrew Tulumello and Theodore Olson’s representation of Tom Brady in his Deflategate appeal, among others, and New York partner Richard Birns’ representations of YES Network in its sale of an approximately 80 percent stake to Fox, and agent Arn Tellem in his move to become vice chairman of Palace Sports & Entertainment. Selections were made based on the viewpoints of hundreds of industry executives as to the power players in outside counsel who are doing meaningful work and playing significant roles in sports business.
