Soccer runs in Ballard Spahr private client practice leader Heike Sullivan’s blood.

Fans of the sport in the Philadelphia region are certainly familiar with the Sullivans, especially with the meteoric rise of Heike’s youngest son, 14-year-old Cavan. One of the world’s top soccer prospects, he’s now a professional for Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union after cutting a deal to play with the team that will see him join global power Manchester City when he turns 18. Heike Sullivan herself was also a soccer star, playing for the University of Pennsylvania during her undergraduate years and subsequently marrying another Penn soccer alumnus, Brendan Sullivan.
