Slaughters, CC and Linklaters score top roles on Arsenal takeover bid
Slaughter and May, Clifford Chance (CC) and Linklaters are among a line-up of firms to have won roles on US businessman Stan Kroenke's full takeover bid for Arsenal Football Club, which values the North London club at £731m. The deal has also handed roles to Herbert Smith and White & Case, with the duo advising on the financing. Kroenke, who has turned to CC City partner Tim Lewis for advice, agreed to launch a mandatory full takeover this weekend after his company Kroenke Sports Enterprises (KSE) acquired a majority stake in the club. He now holds 62.89% of shares in the Premier League club.
