An Australian law firm has been announced as the official lawyers of the Invictus Games 2018.

The Invictus Games is an international annual sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women. The games were started by Prince Harry in London in 2014 to support and inspire these personnel, with Sydney set to host the 2018 event.

MinterEllison has been announced as the official lawyers of the 2018 Invictus Games. This role will see the firm providing a wide range of legal and rights protection services. MinterEllison will also be an official supporter of the Australian teams competing in the 2017 Games in Toronto and the 2018 Sydney Games.

“The Invictus Games are truly inspirational,” said MinterEllison chief executive Tony Harrington AM.

“They are about much more than just sport, and MinterEllison’s partnership with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 is about much more than just legal work.

“We are proud and honoured to have been chosen to join the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 family. Partnering with clients to provide innovative solutions is what we’re about at MinterEllison.

“This partnership is something that every person in our firm will take enormous pride in and be inspired by.”

MinterEllison will provide a team of secondees to the games, led by sports and entertainment partner Paula Robinson and managed by senior associate Jessica Norris. The Minters team will work with the general counsel for the Sydney Games, Stuart Corbishley, to provide comprehensive legal services for the event.

Invictus Games 2018 CEO, Patrick Kidd OBE, said he was looking forward to working with the Minters team.

“We are extremely pleased to have the experienced team from MinterEllison helping us deliver a memorable Invictus Games Sydney 2018,” he said.

“Together, our mission is to inspire the Australian community to embrace our wounded, injured and ill service personnel and veterans, their family and friends, and create a positive, lasting legacy as we celebrate their unconquerable spirit.”

MinterEllison is also providing legal services to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games through a three-year partnership announced in 2016.

The firm took home several awards from the Lawyers Weekly Corporate Counsel Awards earlier this year, with Ms Robinson winning Sports and Entertainment Lawyer of the Year and the MinterEllison Commonwealth Games team winning Sports and Entertainment Team of the Year.
