Local law firm facilitates Premier League football club acquisition


Appleby has advised on the acquisition of Burnley FC.

Velocity Sports Partners - an investment arm of ALK Capital LLC - was led through the acquisition process by law firm Appleby.

“It has been a real privilege to work with ALK Capital and Pinsents on this high profile acquisition,” said Corporate Partner, Andrew Weaver, “which positions Burnley FC for substantial growth and development with the support of its majority owners.”
