For ordinary Nationals fans, the new stadium is an ideal spot for a family outing. For D.C. law firms, it’s also a perfect place to schmooze with clients. Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman; Sidley Austin; Steptoe & Johnson; and Venable are among the firms that have snatched up seats and luxury boxes largely for entertaining clients. Steptoe litigation partner Filiberto Agusti attended opening day in the firm’s luxury box, which Steptoe shares with another company. Situated between home plate and first base, the box is “very tastefully done. It’s got this glass wall that you can close if the weather gets cold out,” Agusti says. Sidley bought four seats in the stadium’s “Presidential Seats” section, but D.C. managing partner Carter Phillips has his own seats behind the third-base dugout. Gibson’s luxury box (which the firm shares with two other groups) overlooks the first-base line. Pillsbury purchased four spots in the ballpark’s “Diamond Seats” section. And Venable has four seats near first base and four just left of home plate.
