Sports Facilities and Tax Exempt Organizations

Attorneys with Roedel Parsons have extensive experience in what is sometimes referred to as "sports law," an area which includes the legal issues that impact the design, construction and financing of collegiate and professional sports facilities and the use of tax exempt organizations to facilitate those projects.

Roedel Parsons' attorneys have been at the forefront of complex real estate projects and issues including the Louisiana Superdome, the New Orleans Arena, Zephyrs Field, the expansion of LSU's Tiger Stadium, the construction of The University Club, and the recently opened "New Alex Box Baseball Facility." Our attorneys often advise our clients on contractual matters including athletic and academic related projects and issues beyond Louisiana.

Examples of our work include:

  • Contract work involving the "Champions Square" recently added to the Louisiana Superdome
  • Golf course acquisition project with the Professional Golfers Association
  • Mediation services regarding construction defects at public facilities
  • Negotiations for the state with the New Orleans Saints, New Orleans Hornets and New Orleans Zephyrs
