Mills & Reeve’s Manchester office makes shortlist for Northwest Football Awards

Mills & Reeve’s Manchester office has been shortlisted in the 2013 Northwest Football Awards for its outstanding provision of professional services to football, supporting players in the region right through from amateur to professional level.

The awards, which will be hosted at Lancashire County Cricket Club in November, recognise the region’s finest contributors to football, whether on the pitch or in the boardroom.

The law firm has been recognised for the role it plays in advising players’ associations and their members, professional football clubs, players and agents on regulatory and legal matters across a number of areas, including sports law, tax, pensions, property, crime and health and safety.

Mills & Reeve’s sports sector is headed up by Mark Hovell, who also heads up the law firm’s Manchester office.
