Finding of corruption in litigation against Bernie Ecclestone concerning sale of Formula One

The firm represented German media group Constantin Medien in a much-publicised claim against Formula One magnate Ecclestone alleging that he and others deliberately undervalued the sport when it was sold to a private equity company in 2005. After a 6 week trial, the judge ruled in favour of Ecclestone in relation to causation, but found as a matter of fact that he had made corrupt payments to a representative of the vendor.

The judgment is available here:

The case was reported in numerous national media outlets, including the BBC. The team continue to act for Constantin Medien AG in all post trial matters and satellite litigation.
