Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) and Hill Dickinson have advised on West Ham United’s new sponsorship agreement.

BLP advised online bookmaker SBOBET on its sponsorship agreement with the club until the end of the 2009-10 season, following the insolvency of ­previous sponsor XL.

The BLP team was led by commercial partner Vanessa Barnett, who said: “BLP’s betting and gaming team have an existing ­relationship with both West Ham United and SBOBET and they brought the two together on this ­partnership.” West Ham United was advised by in-house ­counsel Roger ­Thompson and Hill Dickinson partner Michael Jones.
