The John I Dent Cup will be known as the Griffin Legal John I Dent Cup following an agreement between the legal firm and the Plus500 Brumbies which sees Griffin Legal become the naming rights partner for the ACT’s premier rugby competition.
Established in 2009, Griffin Legal partners with business, government, national bodies, community organisations and sport and prides itself on the ability to provide an alternative to the traditional, inflexible law firms.
Griffin Legal provides accessible services to local and national clients of all sizes, as well as a supportive environment with their values reflecting what they are, where they have come from, and what they are striving to achieve.
“We are delighted to welcome Griffin Legal to the Brumbies Rugby family as naming rights partner for the John I Dent Cup,” Plus500 Brumbies CEO Michael Thomson said.
“Griffin Legal are a well-established company based in Canberra and espouse similar values to ourselves in that they strive to achieve Excellence, Commitment, Integrity and Respect. They are a perfect fit for our local rugby competitions being a Canberra born and bred company with a strong culture of social and corporate responsibility. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial partnership.”
Managing Partner, Claire Carton, said that Griffin Legal was proud to support the John I Dent Cup as naming right partner.
“As a consistent supporter of community sport in the region, we have chosen to sponsor the Cup this year in recognition of partner Peter McGrath’s significant commitment to rugby in Canberra, as a player, official and administer.”
“The sponsorship also fits well with our commitment to the local Canberra community generally and our Australia wide focus on sports law,” Ms Carton said.
The Griffin Legal John I Dent Cup will kick-off on Saturday 7 April with three huge fixtures including reigning champions Royals travelling to Viking Park to take on Tuggeranong.
