Built concurrently with Allegiant Stadium, the 336,227-square-foot, state-of-the-art headquarters and training facility has the largest field house in the NFL. Designed to engage the local community, the space is available for special events and practices. From site selection through completion, our team served as project counsel handling the complex financing, and negotiated and managed all agreements including the sale and leaseback of the facility.
Opened in 2016, the 20,000-seat multi-purpose arena is home to the Vegas Golden Knights and is a venue for the UFC, concerts and sporting events. Our team represented the joint venture project between AEG and MGM Resorts International. Located on the Las Vegas strip, the arena anchors Toshiba Plaza, a two-acre space with outdoor stages and a unique mesh wall. As project counsel, our team negotiated and managed all agreements from the design phase and construction through project closeout agreements, claims, and claims resolution.
The East Coast debut of MGM Resorts, this 24-story, 300+ room integrated resort casino sits on the Potomac River across from Washington, DC. The $1.5 B, LEED Gold-certified resort features a host of amenities, including an impressive conservatory displaying seasonal botanical exhibits in a 85-ft tall glass atrium. Involved from the ground up, our team negotiated and drafted all construction contracts and handled the insurance and risk management profile. Post-completion, we advised on project closeout agreements, claims, and claims resolution, including successfully arbitrating a multimillion-dollar design defect claim.
MGM National Harbor
This 67-story, 3,500+ room hotel and convention space is built on a 24.5 acre site that includes a 65,000 sq ft theater, as well as retail, dining, spa, and gaming. Construction was 70 percent complete before the project went into Chapter 11 following the Great Recession. After changing hands, the original owner repurchased the property in 2021. Representing the owner, our team helped navigate the complex permitting and regulatory hurdles needed to resume construction on the $3.7 B project. We negotiated construction and operational contracts and continue to provide construction management support. Anticipated opening is December 2023.
Fontainbleau Las Vegas
The 65,000-seat stadium was completed in 2020 on time and on budget, despite significant disruptions from the COVID pandemic. Unique features of the $2 billion project include a translucent dome, retractable field tray, and the 93-foot Al Davis Memorial Torch. As counsel to the Las Vegas Raiders, our team handled every aspect of development and construction of the stadium from dirt through completion and opening. Our team continues to handle all facets of operating the stadium, including sponsorship and event contracts.
