Beswicks Legal partners Gary Mellor and Nick Phillips headed presentations at the United Soccer League (USL) Winter Summit at Clearwater Beach at the weekend.

Beswicks have been official advisors to the USL – the largest amateur and professional football league in the USA – since 2008 and gave presentations on Player Transfers and International Tours to the USL Board and club franchise owners during the prestigious event.

North American clubs were advised on FIFA rules and regulations and the importance of seeking the right advice to ensure compliance.

Gary Mellor said: “USL is the longest standing professional soccer league in North America and is now the fastest-growing league in the world. The progress and professionalism shown by Alec Papadakis and Jake Edwards are driving the organisation forward. It has been a privilege to advise such a fantastic group of people for the best part of a decade.”
