UK law firm Shoosmiths has launched a new private client advisory service to manage the affairs of professionals and entrepreneurs in the sport, media and entertainment industries and will be led by Haydn Roberts, former head of player liaison at Manchester City.
The elite advisory team is the result of a collaboration between Shoosmiths’ private client and commercial practice groups and is unique in offering clients specialist, full-service legal advice from a team of experts through one point of contact.
The new service will draw expertise from across Shoosmiths and other specialist firms to meet the needs of elite clients.
Mr Roberts said: “It is no secret that the quality of legal advice given can make or break careers in the world of sports and entertainment. At Shoosmiths we have specialist, full-service expertise which is not only rare but integral for these industries who require a full spectrum of legal advice.
“Our first step was to bring these lawyers together to form one house of experts for these clients – and the second step was to create one point of contact within Shoosmiths for clients and the house of experts.
“This is a unique and innovative move by Shoosmiths and has been very warmly received by clients including football agents and music entrepreneurs who not only have more time focus on the job in hand but also have peace of mind that their legal services are being dealt with by specialists who have the skills and expertise to robustly protect their interests.”
Shoosmiths has 11 offices across the United Kingdom, over 160 partners and more than 1500 lawyers and support staff.
