Taylor Wessing advises The Athletic on Tifo Football acquisition

  • QUICK READ

International law firm Taylor Wessing has advised sports publisher The Athletic on its acquisition of UK-based football media channel Tifo Football.

Taylor Wessing's Corporate Technology team advised The Athletic on its UK launch in the summer of 2019, and continues to work closely with the innovative sports publisher on its international growth.

The Athletic is a subscription-based publisher of premium sports journalism, founded in the US in 2016. It is highly regarded by fans and media professionals alike for its original business model and its impactful coverage written by top-tier local and national sports journalists.

Mark Barron, Corporate Technology partner and head of the firm's market-leading inward investment practice, said:

"It's no exaggeration to say The Athletic has reinvented sports publishing and is now writing some of the most thoughtful and insightful sports journalism out there. The Tifo acquisition means even more original, quality sports content for fans. After advising on the UK launch last year, we'll continue to give The Athletic team the commercial and legal advice which ensures they carry on going from strength to strength."

The team was led by Mark Barron and associate Alex Dodds (Corporate Technology), with support from associates Harry Ruffell (Corporate Technology), Katie Davenport (Employment/IP), partner Graham Samuel-Gibbon (Tax) and associate Alice Thomas (Tax), partner Graham Hann (Commercial Technology & Data/IP) and associate Anjali Chandarana (Commercial Technology & Data/IP).
