Meet Our Sponsors: K&L Gates

We are delighted that global law firm, K&L Gates, is once again a presenting sponsor of the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub swim.

K&L Gates assists established leaders and emerging players across a range of industries. Its competitive edge is delivering quality work through universal experience and unsurpassed client service. K&L Gates has offices across  Australia and four other continents, and if you're lucky you may even spot one or more of its lawyers out in the open, navigating the Indian Ocean currents around March every year.

As part of its sponsorship, K&L Gates partner Eric Fethers recently hosted a fabulous seafood lunch with former Olympian, restaurateur, Celebrity MasterChef winner and Port to Pub swim competitor – Eamon Sullivan and event organiser (and champion open water swimmer) Ceinwen Roberts. Eamon spoke about his career since retiring from professional swimming, including taking his love of food from high school economics class to fuelling up his Olympic team mates, winning Celebrity MasterChef and opening his own restaurants. Eamon will once again be battling it out to Rottnest this year with his superstar teammates in a team of six.

Never ones to miss an opportunity to swap their suits for speedos, K&L Gates lawyers and clients will also have involvement in two teams in swim – vying for victory!

And don't forget to watch out for the roving K&L Gates photographers at the Rottnest finish line, giving out polaroid photos to our wonderful competitors and spectators.
