City Football Group has recruited Fladgate LLP associate Thomas Edwards as a legal counsel.


Edwards had been an associate focussing on sports, commercial and intellectual property law at Fladgate LLP since 2019.


City Football Group – which majority owns Manchester City FC in the Premier League, New York City Football Club in the MLS and Melbourne City FC of the A-League – has bolstered its legal team with a number of new recruits this year.


Last month, it hired Christopher Watkins from Allen & Overy as a legal counsel, and Rachel Forbes, formerly a solicitor at Pinsent Masons, also as a legal counsel.
