Manchester City’s former head of player liaison, Haydn Roberts has joined Shoosmiths to lead a new Elite Advisory team.

The private client advisory service, which was recently launched at Shoosmiths’ Manchester office, will manage the affairs of professionals and entrepreneurs in sport, media and entertainment.

Roberts will act as one point of contact for a team of experts offering full-service legal advice in the team.

Roberts says: “It is no secret that the quality of legal advice given can make or break careers in the world of sports and entertainment.

“Our first step was to bring these lawyers together to form one house of experts for these clients – and the second step was to create one point of contact within Shoosmiths for clients and the house of experts.”
