Peters & Peters partner Elizabeth Robertson has bagged the lead mandate in the fight over Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s dog, a Yorkshire terrier puppy called Leya.
Robertson advised Mourinho and Leya on the complaint by a vet that the puppy had travelled from Portugal to London without receiving the proper vaccinations for rabies.
Mourinho and Leya denied the charges.
The work was referred to Robertson by Esther Schutzer-Weissman, a barrister at 6 King’s Bench Walk. Robertson accompanied Leya to Heathrow where the dog was subjected to a quick check-up and then escorted to a plane back to Portugal in line with Article 13 of the Animal Health Act 1981.
Leya will spend the next six months in Portugal and could not be reached for comment. Neither could Mourinho.
Peters & Peters will lose its football manager’s dog dispute practice when Robertson leaves for Addleshaw Goddard in September.
