Fieldfisher advised Bobby Moore The Movie Limited on arranging the fund-raising package and the director's agreement for this documentary feature regarding the life of Bobby Moore.

Archive footage of Moore’s life and times will blend with interviews, old and new, and the real stories behind Moore’s footballing glory; his battles with two bouts of cancer; the facts that led to false accusations about a stolen bracelet and the failure to give a home-grown hero anything like the respect he deserved in later life.

Written and produced by acclaimed football journalist and TV presenter Matt Lorenzo and directed by the award-winning commercials and documentary maker Finn McGough, (“Summer With The Johnsons”, “Banged Up Abroad”), who will also co-write with Lorenzo, the new, but as yet untitled, Bobby Moore feature documentary project will be  produced by Ralph Kamp (“Postman Pat: The Movie,” “Manchester United: Beyond the Promised Land”, “The Phantom of the Opera”), of Timeless Films. Timeless is also handling worldwide sales, with Entertainment One (eOne) distributing the film in the United Kingdom.

Fieldfisher's team was led by partner and Head of TMT Tim Johnson and comprised corporate partner Carlton Durrant and Head of Tax & Structuring Derek Hill.
