Roger Terrell has practised as a lawyer for more than twenty-five years. Over his long, varied and often controversial career, he has represented a wide range of clients from all walks of life. These clients have managed to get themselves involved in a myriad of legal issues ranging from the most serious criminal allegations to the most unbelievable, factual situations. Then by a chance meeting with a client involved in professional sport, he became a football agent and subsequently chairman of two football league clubs. In this book, he shares with us his true stories and fascinating behind the scenes accounts of his life and times including:- The inside story, emotions and tactics involved in representing a client charged with the most serious crime - murder, and in this particular case, more distressingly the murder of his wife. The drama of representing a client falsely arrested on suspicion of being a member of the IRA and being involved in a conspiracy to cause a serious explosion in Manchester, which injured two hundred innocent people. The legal problems and human consequences arising from arranged and forced marriages in Pakistan and Bangladesh. A range of interesting cases highlighting the legal problems encountered in the breakdown of relationships, including cases where possession of family pets is sometimes more important than financial issues. The ups and downs as acting as a FIFA registered agent, dealing with professional footballers, big name managers and how the "bung" system works. The controversy and politics involved in the acquisition of two football league clubs and his subsequent appointment as chairman of both clubs, one appointment lasting just one day as their fans rioted. Overcoming serious illness on not one, but two occasions. Interaction with the national and local media and how to sell a story to the paparazzi. Definitely "An Unusual Brief"
