David Hinchliffe, Partner, Sport

Having come from a background of football restructuring, David has developed specialist expertise advising on the acquisitions and disposals of football clubs, acting for both buyers and sellers, and is well regarded as one of the key advisers in the country in this field. David has advised on three Premier League and five Championship sales/purchases in the past few months alone (completing five sales/purchases in the past twelve months).

David and the team were recently described by Legal 500 as being “singled out for providing advice that is always tailored to clients needs”.

David enjoys living the highs and lows with his clients and is truly part of the clients’ team. He fights hard for his clients and strongly believes that if his client loses then he loses. He prides himself on always being readily accessible to his clients. He seeks not only to give the very best legal advice but also sees it as his duty to find solutions to problems and is recognised as being “sharp, to the point, and does not take prisoners.” (Chambers UK). Having him as part of your team hugely increases your chance of success.

In their words

"I am passionate about helping my clients identify the best possible strategy for them. To do this, I adopt a commercial, results driven focus. I appreciate that circumstances change and I adapt my advice accordingly. I always provide my clients with the best opportunity for a beneficial outcome. I enjoy building and maintaining excellent relationships with my clients."
