DLA Piper has signed an agreement with the International Biathlon Union to become its exclusive supplier of legal services.
The IBU is an international federation representing the sport of biathlon in each country around the world and is the recognized ruling body for the sport of biathlon. The agreement results in DLA Piper becoming the IBU’s exclusive partner in the field of legal services.
Nick Fitzpatrick, Global Co-Chair of DLA Piper’s Media Sport and Entertainment sector commented:
“We are really happy to have been appointed as legal advisors to the IBU. Working with federations on hosting events and managing all the associated issues really is a “sweet spot” for us where we can really add value. What is particularly nice about this appointment is that it is the work of a collaboration between our lawyers in multiple jurisdictions across Europe, demonstrating the benefits of our global practice”.
