Patrick Cannon, Consultant, Corporate, Fieldfisher

I am a leading expert in real estate finance and corporate finance, with over 25 years' experience spent advising both public and private clients, on property, sport, leisure and renewable projects.

As head of the firm's sports group, I act for clients in the world of motor racing, football, rugby, golf, tennis, cricket and horseracing, advising on the commercial and funding aspects of their business.  In particular I advise on the structuring and financing of stadia, racetrack and arena developments.

In the football sector, I have recently been involved in the takeovers of Glasgow Rangers FC, Portsmouth FC and Southampton FC.  In motorsport, I have been involved in major takeovers and/or developments or proposed developments at Silverstone, Donington Park and Clypse Moar in the Isle of Man.

In relation to real estate expertise, I have advised many asset backed businesses including owners and operators of data centres, student accommodation, serviced offices, serviced apartments, self storage, care centres and hotels.

In relation to corporate finance, I have advised listed and unlisted companies on all aspects of corporate transactions including acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, reorganisations, investment and AIM flotations.

I am on the development board of the international sports related charity Right To Play.

In my spare time I play golf and I am also a keen London Irish RFC supporter.
