Baron Pannick of Radlett has reportedly been hired as Manchester City Football Club’s lawyer as they look to stay in European competitions for the next two years.
David Pannick, a leading QC who was made Baron Pannick of Radlett when he was awarded a life peerage in 2008, will be leading Man City’s charge to overturn ban from European competition for the next two seasons.
The lawyer played a critical role in what is described as “the Supreme Court case of the year, if not the decade” concerning Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue Parliament last year.
National papers such as The Mirror and the Mail Online reported that City will be paying the lawyer around £20,000-a-day.
The 63-year-old lawyer recently featured in the latest edition of The Lawyer Hot 100, which seeks to recognise “the most innovative and creative lawyers” leading the profession in 2020. Lord Pannick’s write-up commended his involvement in several key commercial disputes.
