Gold Coast 2018 agrees world-first legal partnership with MinterEllison

Gold Coast 2018 agrees world-first legal partnership with MinterEllison
February 23, 2016

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) has agreed a three-year deal with leading Australian law firm MinterEllison in what it claims is a world-first partnership for a major sporting event.

As the official lawyers of Gold Coast 2018, MinterEllison will provide a fully outsourced legal and brand protection service to GOLDOC – embedding a team of experienced lawyers within the organising corporation and drawing in national specialist advisers as required.

MinterEllison’s embedded team will advise across a broad range of areas, including sponsorship, brand protection, broadcasting, ticketing, licensing, ceremony production, venue use, overlay construction and major procurements.

Commenting on the partnership, MinterEllison Chief Executive Tony Harrington stated “everyone at the firm is proud and tremendously excited to be involved in delivering the largest sporting event in Australia this decade.

“When the curtain falls on the closing ceremony in April 2018, MinterEllison will be the only law firm in Australia, and quite possibly the world, with complete end-to-end major event project experience."

GOLDOC Chairman Nigel Chamier added that he was delighted to welcome MinterEllison to the GC2018 sponsor family, explaining "this is a very important partnership for GOLDOC and it gives us great confidence as we move towards 2018 to know that we have a leading global legal firm providing the organisation with advice right up until the Games and then through to dissolution.

"We are also very proud that the MinterEllison team will get to experience the diversity of working with an international multisport event that has multiple and complex operational and business deliverables."

MinterEllison becomes the second official supporter of the next edition of the multi-sport event, with professional services group KPMG having signed on in December.
