Fladgate LLP is delighted to have acted for Gareth Bale in connection with his transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid.
A cross-firm team advised on various aspects of the transaction led by head of corporate, Grant Gordon, assisted by sports partner, Alan Wetterhahn.
Commenting on the transfer, Grant Gordon said: “Transfer deals of this nature are becoming ever more complex, reflecting the need for advice on a myriad of elements, including corporate, tax, regulatory, IP, image and media rights, and employment. This matter had to accommodate a number of competing interests and, of course, was against a background of intense press speculation. We are delighted to have been able to act for Gareth and wish him every success in his move to Real Madrid.”
