In this section

With one of the largest and most experienced multidisciplinary legal teams in the sports industry, we are proud to work with many Premier League and English Football League clubs, managers, coaches and players, as well as international sports agencies.

Highly demanding commercial, operational and reputational needs — and the risks in getting things like transfers, partnerships and compliance wrong — mean that everyone involved in modern football needs specialised legal advisers who truly understand this unique environment.

Renowned for high-end work

Renowned for a variety of high-end work — ranging from advising on the acquisition of football clubs in administration to acting for prominent public figures in crisis management matters and advising on transfers, player contracts and football regulations — our football law experts add value, speak your language and dare to address the new legal challenges you face.

Many members of our team are continuously ranked in professional guides as leading individuals in their fields (including in The Legal 500) and recognised by awards bodies like The Northwest Football Awards and Northern Powerhouse Awards. 

As a firm, we are ranked in the top tier of The Legal 500 for sports law. We are also regular commentators on legal issues in football, featuring in national and regional press as well as on radio and television.
