According to an article in the Philadelphia Daily News, Andrew L. Barroway, managing partner of Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP, is also a partner in a very different venture - a group that is in talks with Comcast Corp., the parent company of Comcast Spectacor, L.P., which owns the Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia 76ers, Philadelphia Phantoms, Wachovia Center, the Wachovia Spectrum, cable sports television group Comcast SportsNet and various other entities.
Barroway is partnering with Wayne D. Kimmel, one of the founders of ETF Venture Funds - a suburban Philadelphia based venture capital fund.
Barroway appears to be something of a 76ers fan - according to a December 2003 American Lawyer article, he lives in the former house of NBA Hall of Famer and former Sixers great Julius Erving, a/k/a "Dr. J."
Though, according to a USA Today article from earlier this year, the Dr. J house is now for sale, together with a neighboring house owned by Barroway and his wife, for a cool $10.9 million.
Regular readers may recall back in August when The D&O Diary highlighted another securities litigator that was "living large" though in a decidedly different way, S. Gene Cauley of Cauley Bowman Carney & Williams, PLLC and his colorful MySpace page (which has since been deactivated).
