LAS VEGAS – Sept. 21, 2020 – As football season kicks off, the newly-constructed stadium in Las Vegas now has the city’s hometown airline, Allegiant, emblazoned on the side. Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP represented Allegiant in securing the naming rights to the state-of-the-art 1.75 million-square-foot climate controlled stadium, which will serve as a site for world-class sports and entertainment events.
“We were very pleased to be partner with Allegiant in this significant global branding opportunity,” said Shareholder Jacob D.
