Arnold & Porter, Hammonds and Travers Smith all won places on Randy Lerner’s £62.6m takeover of Aston Villa Football Club.
Arnold & Porter is a main adviser to American billionaire Lerner and his family estate in the US, and was brought in to advise on the bid.
The team was led by London corporate partner Jeremy Willcocks, with Joe Howe in the firm's Washington office advising on international tax issues.
