Leib Advisors, LLC provides strategic valuation and transaction services, as well as market and financial services to the sports, recreation, and entertainment industries at the amateur and professional levels, for public and private institutions as well as individuals. Our distinctive blend of resources, experience, and proficiency allows us to deliver focused and strategic advisory services.

Bob Leib founded the firm in 1999. Bob had previously been a tax partner at Arthur Andersen LLP and a principal member of Arthur Andersen’s Sports Industry Group. A major focus of our practice efforts lie in the harnessing of relevant operating data and the cataloguing of creative revenue enhancement opportunities to support the development of an operating strategy that can support appropriate levels of debt financing, acceptable returns to the buyers, and moreover dovetails with the economics of a price competitive bid.

Another major focus of our practice is the analysis of a facility’s feasibility, market potential, tenants, revenue streams, expenses, and operations. We are often also involved in planning a facility’s financing, including working with clients in identifying funding sources based on our realistic forecasts, and estimating a project’s economic and fiscal impacts to a community.
