About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Health care
    representation of health care carriers, producers, association health plans, employers, self insurers, third party administrators, and payers generally in business, transactional, and regulatory matters including enforcement and compliance.

  2. Insurance
    experience with all lines, representation of carriers, producers, association health plans, employers, and payers in business and regulatory matters including enforcement and compliance.

  3. Contracts and agreements
    Sports agent. Soccer Player's Agent licensed by United States Soccer Federation in accordance with FIFA licensing requirements. Negotiate contracts with players and clubs.

Soccer is a very important part of my life.  I hold a Soccer Players' Agent License issued by the United States Soccer Federation in accordance with licensing requirements of FIFA, the governing body for global soccer.  This license enables me to represent soccer players and teams worldwide. 

I play on two "old boys" teams:  Red Zingers (over 50) and Bainbridge island United (over 55) in the Greater Seattle Soccer League.  It's a lot of fun and we get to play against some former pros from the old North American Soccer League, guys I used to pay to watch play.

I got into soccer in Denmark in the early 1970s thanks to my wife's brother, sister and father all of whom were heavily into the Danish national team.  I've followed Denmark and its club teams including FC Copenhagen and Odense Boldklub since then and was lucky enough to have been in Copenhagen when Denmark won the European Championship in 1992.  I have several friends in Denmark who played professionally and for the Danish national team.  Some of them are now coaches.

In 2009 I attended a Copa Libertadores match at La Bombonera in Buenos Aires, and Boca Juniors became another favorite of mine.  Unfortunately for Boca, their performance has declined steadily since then!  I also follow Estudiantes and Independiente. 

A Seattle Sounders FC inaugural season ticketholder, I look forward to great success for the team, and to Portland and Vancouver joining the fray in 2011!

An excellent lawyer
I have worked with Jeff for several years representing similar though competing clients. Jeff is always well informed, thorough, outspoken, and a good advocate for his clients while maintaining a polite and repectful demeanor for everyone else's opinions and positions. I would have no hesitancy in recommending Jeff.

Director Regulatory Affairs
Jeff is always knowledgeable and factual. I have gone to him on many occasions whether to brainstorm options or to ask for specific legal advice. He is more than willing to go the extra mile for his clients. Will work with him continually in the future.

Jeff Gingold review
We found Jeff to be bright, well informed and solution oriented. He treated our concern as if it was the only one he was working on and was able to help facilitate a quick and positive outcome. I would highly recommend Jeff for his his ability to quickly learn operational concerns and apply his legal knowledge towards a contractual solution.
