Leeds city law firm Levi Solicitors LLP has made a dual announcement; the launch of its Sports Law Department, together with the signing of former Leeds United captain Dominic Matteo as its Sports Law Ambassador.
The firm are creating a specialist Sports Law department, building on its key strengths of technical excellence and outstanding client service, together with a network of commercial partners to offer those in the sports industry the complete professional service.
It is in recognition of the firm’s vision and ethos that Dominic Matteo has agreed to sign up with the firm. Dominic’s career spanned fifteen years at the highest level of English Football. After eight years with Liverpool, Dominic joined Leeds United in 2000 where he soon attained hero status, scoring one of the club’s most memorable goals against A.C. Milan at the San Siro during their wonderful run in the UEFA Champions League that year.
Dominic left Leeds United in 2004, and after spells at Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City (both as captain) retired from playing in 2007. Dominic has retained strong links with the city of Leeds and the club itself, writing a weekly column for the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Dominic stated, “I am delighted to sign with Levi Solicitors and to be a part of their new Sports Law Department.
I learned very early in my career that getting the right professional advice from the right people is crucial to sustain personal success, and it’s Levis understanding of this importance that persuaded me to get on board.
I have been particularly impressed with the set-up of the firm and the quality of lawyers they have to offer and hope that I can help drive this new venture to real success for the firm and clients alike.”
Levi Solicitor’s Managing Partner Steven Newdall stated, “The firm prides itself on achieving outstanding results for clients in a competitive and challenging environment, and we are delighted to be able to offer this to those involved in both professional and amateur sport. Dominic’s insight into the support required by professional sports people, both during and after their careers, makes him an invaluable addition to the team.
We are delighted that Dominic has agreed to work closely with us. His honesty and integrity is clearly and rightly held in high esteem and his knowledge and experiences on and off the pitch during his illustrious career have helped us tailor our offering to the needs of those involved in sport and sporting organisations throughout the UK. His agreement to sign with us is testament to the talent and work ethic of our team and we are thrilled, excited and privileged to be working with him.”
