WASHINGTONSportsBusiness Journal has named Doug Gibson and Gregg Levy to its list of the “50 Most Influential People in Sports Business.” Mr. Gibson and Mr. Levy are two of only four lawyers in private practice on the list, which also includes league commissioners and team owners, broadcast industry and sponsor company CEOs, and other high-profile executives in the sports business. 

Mr. Gibson’s practice emphasizes strategic counseling; mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures; debt financings; and sports media transactions, regularly representing the firm’s sports clients, including Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, the PGA of Americas, the United States Tennis Association, the UFC, the Chicago Cubs, and the Portland Trailblazers.

Mr. Levy practices principally in the area of litigation, with an emphasis on antitrust and competition-related issues. He has extensive experience in complex, multi-party cases, and he has broad expertise with respect to a wide array of legal issues affecting professional sports leagues.
