We have developed a strong reputation within the sports sector on a UK-wide basis which was recognised by our client.

This was a significant transaction in the context of Scottish football and has resulted in a much-needed cash injection into the club to avoid administration. It is hoped that, given the intended new management structure in the club, it will stand a good chance of promotion to the Scottish Premiership next season.


This complex deal involved collaboration with Brodies' experts in corporate finance and acquisitions, commercial contracts, sponsorship, real estate, employment, pensions and tax.

We have also advised on the contractual arrangements of the management of the club post-acquisition and future investment into the club to ensure its continued success and prosperity into the future.
