From Transworld News:
Attorney John Morgan of the Orlando-based law firm Morgan & Morgan was approached recently by a Tampa advertising executive about a potential deal to purchase the naming rights to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. Morgan & Morgan (ForThePeople.com) is one of the nation’s largest plaintiff’s law firms.
According to an article published on Tampa Bay Online, Morgan said, “I was asked if I have an interest in buying the name of the stadium, and I do ... Putting ‘Morgan & Morgan Forum’ on that building - that appeals to me.” Morgan said he was offered a price of $1.7 million per year by John McKay of McKay Advertising, an independent advertising firm in Tampa. This is almost a million dollars less than the St. Petersburg Times now pays for the naming rights to this arena, which is home to the NHL team Tampa Bay Lightning.
