Arent Fox Scores SBJ Power Players Hat Trick 

Arent Fox Sports Practice Leader Richard L. Brand, Corporate & Securities Leader Steven A. Cohen, and Sports and Corporate & Securities Partner William Z. Ordower have been named Power Players by Sports Business Journal in their rankings of the sports industry’s best outside counsel.

SBJ notes that the Arent Fox team, “helmed by Brand and Cohen, continues to be a leader in crafting some of the leading naming-rights deals in the industry.” Bill was honored after he joined Arent Fox earlier this year “after 20 years with MLS, bringing experience in media and digital rights, equity investments sponsorship, licensing, sports betting, ticketing, and more.”
SBJ reports that Counsel Maidie E. Oliveau, a member of SBJ’s Game Changers Class of 2013, is a go-to industry advisor and “has served as an arbitrator in the Court of Arbitration for Sport since 1997 and handled the Big Ten’s media rights deal with ESPN, CBS and Fox in 2017.”
SBJ interviews hundreds of industry executives for their viewpoints on the industry’s top outside counsel. Ranked firms and attorneys are “in the middle of the biggest deals in sports, have access to the top executives, and offer some of the sharpest, brightest minds in the business.”
