The Super Bowl of compliance: the attorney behind the big game

Joe Mont | January 31, 2017

On Super Bowl Sunday, the game itself won’t be the only nerve-wracking test of game plans.

Behind the scenes is Tom Ajamie, founding partner of Ajamie LLP. For nearly two years—long before the competitive field would whittle down to the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons—he and his firm have taken on the role of counsel to the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, providing a wide range of legal services for the multibillion-dollar event.

Ajamie is the point man for ensuring that all involved parties—from advertisers to sponsors to ticket vendors—remain compliant with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

Ajamie, an internationally recognized trial lawyer, is also the co-author of the book “Financial Serial Killers: Inside the World of Wall Street Money Hustlers, Swindlers, and Con Men.”
