Lombardi Associates Successfully Act For Client Torino

Share This Post

Over the previous two years, Lombardi Associates acted in a complicated matter for our client, Torino FC. The matter involved the transfer of a player from Torino to a Mexican club. Despite signing the transfer agreement, the player did not sign an employment agreement with the Mexican club, instead choosing to sign an agreement with an Argentinean club.
