FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons’ parent company announced the hiring of Mike Egan as senior vice president and general counsel.

Egan, a long-time partner in the corporate practice group of Atlanta-based law firm King & Spalding, represented Arthur Blank when he acquired the Falcons and, more recently, a Major League Soccer expansion franchise. Blank described Egan as a “key leader” in the negotiations for a new stadium, which now is under construction downtown.

Egan will join AMB Group – the parent company of the Falcons, the Falcons Stadium Co., the MLS team, PGA Tour Superstore and Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Montana – on Jan. 5.

In addition to his legal responsibilities as general counsel, Egan will serve as operational executive of the stadium construction project, according to AMB Group.

“Although it is hard to leave a great firm like King & Spalding after 31 years, the chance to contribute more directly to the mission of the Blank Family of Businesses is a very special opportunity,” Egan said.
