Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships Director Commercial Operations Darren Beazley today announced Australian commercial law firm Middletons as exclusive legal services sponsor to the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
Darren Beazley said Perth 2011 was delighted with the support of an Australian legal industry leader in Middletons, whose valuable partnering will see Perth 2011 provided with the highest calibre legal advice on matters relating to the highly anticipated Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
"An event the size of what the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships will be, with in excess of 1,500 competing athletes and hundreds of thousands of live spectators, obviously brings with it the need for sound legal advice, guidance and leadership of the highest order. Having Middletons on board as exclusive legal services sponsor will help the Perth 2011 team ensure the highest legal standards are implemented for the Event," Beazley said.
"Middletons' ongoing advice and support ahead of and during the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships will assist us in making the Event one to remember."
Middletons is one of Australia's leading law firms, whose team exceeds 500 employees and includes 300 legal advisers. Middletons has extensive experience acting for industry leaders, major corporations and government on groundbreaking legal transactions in Australia and internationally and their commercial expertise and knowledge ensures they add value to their clients' businesses.
Middletons' National Managing Partner Nick Nichola said Middletons was thrilled to be partnering with the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, to be held in Fremantle, Western Australia from 3 December to 18 December 2011.
"Middletons, like the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, has a true national presence with a global reach. Much like the way in which our lawyers service clients, the Perth 2011 Event embodies Middletons' values in showcasing innovation in world sailing, which engages and challenges these athletes," Nichola said.
Due to the increased demand by its clients for legal services in Western Australia, Middletons is pleased to have recently added its Perth office to its already well established Sydney and Melbourne offices.
Middletons, Salter Power and Franklyn Legal merged late last year to form a significant new presence in the Western Australian legal market. The Perth office is a full service law firm, operating under the Middletons name.
