By John Mulgrew

Law firm Pinsent Masons has advised on the sale of Dundalk Football Club. The firm, which has a major Belfast office and has expanded into the Republic, advised a US-based consortium over the club's takeover.

Belfast partners advised on the deal's employment law implications.

Dennis Agnew, partner at Pinsent Masons in Dublin, who led on the corporate aspects of the deal, said: "Working closely with our global head of sport, Trevor Watkins, and our sports advisory team, we were able to bring considerable specialist expertise into the Irish legal market to support our core offering in Dublin. We look forward to building on this going forward, both within the sports sector and other key areas of the firm."
