Burness Paull Advises Standard Life Investments on British & Irish Lions Sponsorship

The Burness Paull commercial team has advised Standard Life Investments on their new partnership with the British & Irish Lions, which sees Standard Life Investments appointed as an Official Partner of the Lions’ 2017 tour to New Zealand.  It will also see Standard Life Investments’ brand adorning the Lions kit, including match jerseys, as principal kit sponsor. 

David Goodbrand, head of commercial at Burness Paull said: “We are delighted to have supported Standard Life Investments in concluding its agreement with one of rugby union’s most historic and iconic teams.  As a rugby fan, it is a very exciting project to have been part of. The Lions have such a rich and colourful history with many memorable examples of exemplary team work leading to success.  I wish Standard Life Investments all the best for a successful partnership, and of course wish the Lions best of luck in New Zealand!”

The Burness Paull commercial team advises clients on a range of commercial matters.  In recent years they have advised clients on a series of high profile sponsorships/contracts relating to the Ryder Cup, the Commonwealth Games, the Scottish Open, tennis events and a host of successful Olympic medal winning athletes.
