Compliance/Administrative Law and Outdoor Advertising chair Patrick Kilduff was featured in a Billboard Insider article that covered the panel he hosted at the 2018 Outdoor Advertising Association of America Legal Seminar.
Patrick J. Kilduff, partner and Chair of Administrative Law and Outdoor Advertising practices, was noted in the Westchester County Business Journal in connection with a dispute between our client, Clear Channel Outdoor, Inc., and the owner of a Yonkers building regarding ownership of the large advertising sign structure located on the roof of the building near the New York State Thruway.
As anyone traveling around New York City can quickly observe, there are an increasing number of vacant street-level retail spaces. These locations that once were home to apparel companies, sporting goods franchises, banks and restaurants are frequently empty for long periods of time as property owners and managers market these spaces in search of new long-term tenants. These vacant spaces, however, present an opportunity that enterprising media companies are poised to exploit – turning these spaces into a platform for the display of dynamic advertising signage.
Compliance/Administrative Law and Outdoor Advertising chair Patrick Kilduff authored an article for Advertising Week 360 on ““I Love NY”... The Wackiest Sign Story of the Year.” The article delves into the approximately 500 new "I Love NY” blue highway signs authorized for installation by the Cuomo Administration. Pat explains, “The stated goal was to promote New York State and elements of the "New York Experience.” The Federal Highway Administration clearly warned New York State that these signs did not comply with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways. Unfazed, the State proceeded, basically daring the feds to do something about it.”
