Gateley Legal

We are pleased to have advised the majority shareholders of Walsall Football Club on their recent sale of the majority shareholding to US-owned sports investment firm, Trivela Group.

The advisory team was led by Paul Cliff, partner, who was supported on the corporate side by Janai Parker along with Michael Birchall from our tax team and James Madill and Chris Cheatle from our real estate team.

Paul Cliff said: “We were pleased to work with Leigh Pomlett, Stefan Gamble and Dan Mole and the whole team at Walsall FC in helping to bring the transaction to a successful conclusion. This is a very exciting time for the club and its new majority owners, its players, staff, and of course the supporters as they all look forward to a new and hopefully successful season.”
