Sponsor Spotlight - K & L Gates
We are delighted to welcome back K&L Gates as a presenting sponsor of the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub, and also the namesake of the K&L Gates Corporate Cup!
Did you know that K&L Gates has a dedicated sports law practice?
Its sports law practice represents some of the most well recognised sporting brands, including the Australian Open, Cricket Australia, FIFA and, of course, Port to Pub.
Venetia Bennett (pictured here with the K&L Gates Corporate Cup) is a Special Counsel at K&L Gates and was elected as the youngest and first female President of the Australian and New Zealand Sports Law Association (ANZSLA), a position she held for six years. Venetia has successfully created a profile as an expert in sports disputes and integrity matters, and is the go-to legal adviser for Western Australian sporting organisations including Football West and the WA Football Commission. Venetia also advises Global Rapid Rugby, the world's newest rugby union series!
Despite the disappointment of cancelling the 2018 event mid-swim, the entire process was handled in a smooth and stress-free manner due to the support and guidance of the team at K&L Gates. We are so pleased to have a legal team with a specialist sports law practice on board as our legal adviser. Thank you for your support!
