Sports

Coblentz provides our sports franchise clients a full range of representation through our corporate, real estate, litigation, and intellectual property practices, offering creativity and commitment that matches our clients’ contributions.

California is home to many national and international sports franchises, and we’re proud to serve as real estate and corporate counsel to one of the most prominent: the San Francisco 49ers. The work we’ve done for the 49ers and its affiliates includes large, complex, and seemingly impossible deals: everything from an ownership reorganization to major real estate and land use counsel to advising on complex property and income tax issues.

We served as lead real estate counsel to help the San Francisco Giants (China Basin Ball Park Company LLC) overcome enormous challenges to build AT&T Park, the highly acclaimed 43,000 seat ballpark in downtown San Francisco; we continue to work alongside the Giants’ general counsel on a variety of matters.
