Slater and Gordon is proud to be the Official Law Firm of the Australian Olympic Team
Under the landmark partnership – the first of its kind between a law firm and the Australian Olympic Committee – Slater and Gordon will provide legal support and services to the Australian Olympic Team across a range of projects for the next 5 years.
Slater and Gordon will support the Australian Olympic Team in the lead up to Rio 2016 and into PyeongChang 2018 and Tokyo 2020. The firm will also support the Australian Youth Olympic Teams as they prepare for events in Lillehammer 2016, Buenos Aires 2018 and on to 2020.
Slater and Gordon senior executive Hayden Stephens said the partnership was an exciting opportunity to contribute to Australia’s Olympic efforts.
“We are a proud Australian company and welcome the opportunity to support Australian athletes from all backgrounds as they compete and excel on the world stage.”
"As a company, we believe in a fair go for everyone and fair play – values that sit at the heart of the Olympic movement."
"We will be providing support to both athletes and officials to help them better understand the legal aspects of the Olympic Team Membership Agreements. The Olympic Team Membership Agreements are an important initiative that upholds the values of fair play and includes a signed Statutory Declaration that a member of the Team has never participated in doping.”
