“Nona has universal respect throughout the sports industry, the state of Arizona and the entire legal profession,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “She has played a critical role in everything the D-backs have accomplished for the past two decades and her groundbreaking role as the first female President of the Sports Lawyers Association is just one of many reasons why she is a role model to so many around her.” 

Lee assisted in the negotiations with FOX Sports Arizona on a 20-year extension that is the largest financial transaction in franchise history. She also assisted with negotiations for the building and use of Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the Arizona Diamondbacks Spring Training home and, most recently, assisted with the negotiations for acquisition of land and construction of the Club’s planned new Dominican Republic Academy for the Club’s DSL team.  She also assists the Baseball Operations department with the preparation and presentation of player salary arbitration matters.
