Learn the backstory of the recently announced Purchase Agreement by which the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority will acquire Downtown East and the Vikings’ pre-game Plaza.  Why was the property included in the legislature’s definition of the "Stadium Site”?  How did the threat of eminent domain factor into negotiations for the sale of the property?  How did early negotiations lead to a "surreal” litigation?  How did the litigation result in a Purchase Agreement?  Most importantly, what lessons from this saga are applicable to your representation of landowners/developers?  

Norman Baer and Philip Kaplan of Anthony Ostlund Baer & Louwagie P.A. represented Minneapolis Venture LLC, the owner of Downtown East.  They will be here to discuss the ever-changing road from the stadium legislation that immediately affected their client’s property to the Purchase Agreement with the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.

Speakers: Norman Baer and Philip Kaplan, Anthony Ostlund Baer & Louwagie PA


Meal option: Ziti Pasta with Vegetarian Ragu and Caesar Salad
