Newly established Sports & Media law firm, Centrefield LLP, has confirmed its place as the UK’s leading professional adviser in football after working on transfers worth over £400 million in the summer transfer window, including a number of record breaking transfers.
The value of deals worked upon by the firm equates to nearly 40% of the estimated £1 billion plus spent in total by Premier League clubs.
The Manchester based practice, which was only established last December, acted for clubs and players on transactions involving seventeen of the twenty Premier League clubs, as well as clubs in the EFL Championship, League One and League Two.
Outside of the domestic market, Centrefield acted on deals involving clubs and players in China, Russia, Africa, Europe, South America and North America. In addition to player transfers and loans, Centrefield also advised on many player contract renewals, as well as on a number of managerial and coaching staff appointments and departures.
