Centrefield LLP: Leading UK sport and media law firm launches in Manchester

Posted on: April 6th, 2016 by cfEditor

A new specialist Sport and Media law firm, Centrefield LLP, has been founded by partners, Edward Canty, David Bentham and Matthew Bennett.


Based in Manchester, Centrefield is made up of a highly specialised team of ten lawyers with over 15 years’ experience advising exclusively in the sport and media sector – one of the key growth sectors for the legal marketplace both in the UK and worldwide. The team is recognised by clients and the industry generally as a true market leader on a national and international basis and continues to act for an enviable client base of household names.

Nine of the ten lawyers in the team left North West based law firm, Brabners LLP, to form Centrefield. The establishment of the new firm builds on the lawyers’ existing reputation and sees Centrefield become one of the UK’s largest sport and media law specialists.
