Chelsea Football Club to Hire its First In-House Legal Advisor

By October 29, 2013Latest News

As a full service law firm with a large array of solicitors handling a large array of legal matters Aston Bond has assisted clients in many different situations. However, we are yet to assist an internationally renowned football club such as Chelsea Football Club; who are looking to employ their first in-house legal advisor in the coming months.

This comes after a handful of international clubs including Manchester United and Liverpool have begun to hire their own in-house legal advisor to review contracts and also handle any legal matters within the club.

However, Chelsea’s in-house legal advisor will handle much more than contracts; their role will also include handling intellectual property, employment law, sports law, as well as commercial matters.

With the role yet to be filled many legal professionals are sure to jump at the opportunity. However, Chelsea FC does have one pre-set requirement: a minimum of three years’ experience within a major City practice.

Moreover, Chelsea Football Club have also noted that being able to speak multiple European languages would also be a plus; primarily Russian.

However, even if you are not Chelsea Football Club and require assistance with commercial law, intellectual property or employment law give us a call on 01753 486 777.

But who will get the ball in the back of the net as Chelsea’s legal advisor?
