Brendan Aloysius Barry, a partner at full-service business law firm Shutts and Bowen LLP, served as lead legal counsel for the sale of The International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) real estate holdings in Dania Beach, Florida.
While the IGFA will continue to operate its world headquarters and executive offices from 300 Gulfstream Way, Dania Beach, the building and southern parcel were sold to Bass Pro Shops and the northern parcel was sold to Baywood Hotels. The combined deal is valued at approximately $20 million and closed on October 27.
“The transaction we closed today cannot be overstated,” Barry said. “The IGFA took an on-going financial obligation and turned it into a multi-million-dollar endowment which will support its efforts to promote responsible angling and the conservation of marine resources for generations to come.”
Barry was assisted in the transaction by Shutts attorneys Edwin J. Stacker, a partner in the Land Use Practice Group; William G. McCullough, Co-Chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group; Jordan G. Lee, Chair of the Private Client Services Practice Group; Sarah Balk, an associate in the Private Client Services Practice Group; paralegal Maribel Henley; and legal assistant Debbie Ouellette.
