Last week, the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) announced Kurt Fearnley and Daniela Di Toro as the captains for the 2016 Rio Games at Clayton Utz’ Sydney office.
Clayton Utz pro bono partner David Hillard met with Mr Fearnley who competes in athletics and Ms Di Toto whose sport is wheelchair tennis (pictured below).
Clayton Utz has been the Official Legal Provider to the Australian Paralympic Committee since 2003.
The firm has provided a range of pro bono legal support including helping to negotiate broadcast rights for the Paralympic Games, providing volunteers and fundraising.
Clutz is continuing to help the APC raise funds over coming months to send the Paralympians to Rio.
