O’Melveny & Myers LLP is noted for its transactional work, with a solid track record in M&A involving sports teams, franchises and stadium development projects. Leadership of the practice is divided between Charles Baker  and Irwin Raij, with combined expertise in investigations, stadium developments, media rights, and transactions. In addition, Bartie stands out as an expert in the area of esports and sports tech, acting for a number of organizations in the space. In California, Amy Siegel’s practice focuses on complex commercial licensing arrangements. Changes to the team include the arrival of counsel Eric Andalman in Washington DC, who joined from CAA ICON in September 2021, and Lindsay Conner in California, joining from Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP in October 2021. The practice particularly benefits from Andalman’s experience in the development and financing of sports venues, derived from his previous in-house role. All lawyers are based in New York unless otherwise stated.
