Squire Patton Boggs advising on Chelsea bid

Firm's partner Brian Gordon leading team instructed by the Blue Football Consortium



Squire Patton Boggs is advising the Blue Football Consortium – which is led by property

developer Nick Candy - on its bid to buy Chelsea Football Club.


Yesterday it was revealed that the consortium had upped its initial £2 billion bid to buy the club after a “large Korean financial institution” had joined the consortium.


Other bidders for the club are understood to include asset management firm Centricus and the Ricketts family, which owns Chicago Cubs.


A shortlist of preferred bidders will be drawn up by merchant bank The Raine Group.
