By a MetNews Staff Writer
Former Anaheim Angels President and CEO Richard M. Brown has joined the conflict resolution firm ARC to pursue a practice focused on sports, broadcast, and entertainment disputes.
Brown’s most recent position was of counsel for the law firm of Bryan Cave, where he founded the firm’s Sports and Broadcast practice.
As a practicing attorney and as general counsel for a number of companies, Brown has extensive experience in contracts, naming rights, and licensing agreements.
At Bryan Cave, Brown represented buyers and sellers of professional sports franchises, AM and FM radio stations and other multi-million dollar properties.
During his six-year tenure as president and CEO of the Angels, Brown negotiated contracts involving the club’s broadcasting rights, payroll and ticket pricing as well as its new stadium design, financing and construction.
“We’re very excited about having Rich Brown on board,” ARC President Amy Newman said. “He has tremendous knowledge and credibility within the sports and entertainment industries and brings an interesting new facet to our panel.”
Brown graduated from UCLA in 1964 and earned his law degree from UCLA School of Law in 1967.
He recently served as vice president of the Josephson Institute of Ethics, a non-partisan organization which teaches ethical decision-making and character development in schools, communities, sports, and the workplace.
