Haynes Boone represented the New York Philharmonic in connection with financing that allowed it to speed up the $550 million renovation of its permanent home, David Geffen Hall. David Geffen Hall is scheduled to reopen in fall 2022, nearly two years ahead of schedule.
Lawyers in Haynes Boone’s New York office have counseled the Philharmonic on other legal fronts, including brand protection, COVID-19 protocols, labor and employment issues, and corporate and tax strategic advice. Much of this work was done on a pro bono basis.
“It has been our honor and privilege to have played a small role in the triumphant return this year of one of the nation’s most revered cultural institutions and a critical part of the lifeblood of New York,” said Haynes Boone Partner Ken Bezozo, who opened the firm’s New York office in 2004. “We look forward to advising the Philharmonic this season and in the years ahead, as it continues to grow and prosper.”
