Ogier advises LionRock on acquisition of Inter Milan stake

Ogier's Hong Kong team has advised longstanding client LionRock Capital on its acquisition of a 31.05% share in Italian football club Inter Milan.

Ogier acted as Cayman counsel to LionRock on the acquisition – partner Nicholas Plowman advised LionRock's asset management business, and partner Anthony Oakes advised on the financing of the deal, along with counsel Jacqueline Chan.

LionRock Capital is a Hong Kong-based fund formed in 2011 that invests mainly in sports markets, but also e-commerce and real estate.

Nicholas Plowman said: "We are delighted to have acted for LionRock, a longstanding client, in respect of their acquisition of a stake in one of the most prestigious football clubs in Europe."
