Pinsent Masons advises winning VINCI team on QE2 London Stadium close

11 Feb 2015 | 02:20 pm |

International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised the winning VINCI Stadium team on the major close of the concession to run and operate the Stadium and South Park at the former Olympic site at Stratford.

The concession has been awarded by E20, a joint venture between the London Legacy Corporation and the London Borough of Newham.  It marks a further landmark in the post 2012 legacy programme for East London. 

The project was a complex and innovative one, combining twin skill-sets of stadium facilities management and events promotion and represents an extension of the VINCI Stadium network to the UK and an important addition to Pinsent Masons sports infrastructure credentials.

Phil Jackson of Vinci who is the new CEO for London Stadium 185 Limited, the new operator for the stadium, said: “This is a very important project and a first for VINCI Stadium here in London.  We are hugely appreciative of the skilled, multi-disciplinary legal contribution from Pinsent Masons in supporting the team.”

Jon Hart, partner at Pinsent Masons said: “We are proud of our long-standing relationship with VINCI across different fields.  Projects like this are few and far between and Pinsent Masons is glad to have been part of the winning solution.”

The Pinsent Masons’ team included Jon Hart, Sonal Shah and Maria Bernitsa of the firm’s Projects team.  E20 and LLDC were advised by David Lowe and Caroline McNally of Wragge Lawrence Graham.
