Sean Carty appointed as FA registered lawyer

We’re pleased to announce that Sean Carty, one of our Employment Solicitors, is now a Football Association Registered Lawyer.

Here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors we’re very pleased to announce that Sean Carty, one of our specialist Employment and Dispute Resolution Lawyers based at our Liverpool head office, has become a Registered Lawyer with The Football Association.

This recognition comes after Sean negotiated the successful transfer of Magaye Gueye from Everton to Millwall Football Club. Frenchman Gueye, who also plays internationally as a forward for Senegal, had been on Everton’s books for 4 years before he completed his transfer to the London club at the end of July.

A keen sportsman himself, Sean’s status as a registered lawyer means he is now able to act as an agent for players aged over 16 at all levels of the professional game. Speaking after receiving confirmation of his approval from the FA, Sean said:

"As someone with a great passion for football and a wealth of experience in playing competitive sport for most of my life, these attributes marry perfectly with my talents as an astute Employment and Dispute Resolution Solicitor. My clients will benefit not only from my expertise of the sports industry and genuine understanding of the commercial side to it, but as a Registered Lawyer with the FA my skills and abilities far outweigh those of a regular agent."
