The above happened when 'La Pulga' insulted the referee at the end of the Argentina - Chile match for the qualifiers of the 2018 World Cup.

On the other hand, Crespo was in charge of advising the Brazilian player Neymar Jr, in his transfer from the Spanish club FC Barcelona to the French team Paris Saint Germain (PSG), an operation that was recorded in the history of the seasonal transfers, as the club paid 222 million for the Brazilian.

Although he is not a lawyer specialized in sports law, he is known in the world of entertainment as the "lawyer of the stars", because he has taken cases of famous artists such as Paris Hilton, Leonardo di Caprio, Mike Tyson, Bruno Mars, among many others. Chesnoff was chosen by Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo after the accusations of rape. The victim and ex-model, Kathryn Mayorga, affirms that CR7 raped her in 2009.

Although the process could take around two years, the truth is that the role of Chesnoff will be crucial for the Portuguese to avoid the scandal.

3. Boca and the law firm

Copa Libertadores's final between Boca Juniors and River Plate was tense from all points of view. From fan attacks to the Boca bus, to postpone the final, it was just a few examples of the longest final of the Cup.

Before the trouble of playing the final at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, home of Real Madrid, the Xeneize team reported that they would do everything possible to "get justice done". In the statement, it was stated that the club "hired Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle, one of the most prestigious and recognized specialized studies in international sports law, to join the legal defense of the institution."

Although the River Plate was crowned champion, winning 3 against 1, this team still waits they will be proclaimed champion.
