Welcome to Footiebusiness. My name is Ben Berger and I am an attorney practicing in Hartford, Connecticut. My practice focuses on commercial litigation, construction law and intellectual property litigation. I have also been fortunate to be a guest lecturer at Quinnipiac University School of Law on the subjects of the business and legal aspects of soccer and a media voter for MLS end of the season awards such as player and coach of the year. I’ve also appeared on World Football Daily to discuss the business of soccer and can be found on Twitter @Footiebusiness.
I have long been fascinated by the business aspects of the game. While this site focuses on the U.S., we will certainly cover international stories of special interest. Feel free to contact me with any questions, suggetions or criticisms about the site. In addition to questions about the world of soccer, feel free to contact me with any questions about the law and legal matters. Send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
