June 27, 2023 – Sport Law is proud to announce that it is continuing its commitment to give back to the sport community by offering pro-bono consulting services to Racing to Zero, an organization committed to creating a grassroots sport community equipped with the tools to tackle climate change.
“We are energized to be partnering with Oluseyi and his team at Racing to Zero to provide the necessary legal and leadership services that will help them achieve their mission of creating a sport community that is making pragmatic, measurable, and inspirational environmental sustainability changes,” shared Sport Law Partner, Steve Indig.
“Racing to Zero is excited and grateful to receive Sport Law's pro bono services. Our start-up can now focus our efforts on providing the best care and results for our clients, knowing that Sport Law will be by our side providing expert counsel as well as helping our team grow,” shared Oluseyi Smith, Olympian and founder of Racing to Zero.
Since 2015, Sport Law has committed to providing legal, financial, strategic, communications and mentoring/femtoring support to athlete-led sport organizations whose vision and values align with ours. Sport Law has been fortunate to collaborate with Spirit North (spiritnorthxc.ca), Their Opportunity, and several retired female national team soccer players.
“We believe in supporting athletes and this approach allows us to honour our commitment to Give Back (one of the seven True Sport Principles). We believe that as a caring company, it is our duty to find ways to support the sport system beyond what we are already doing,” shared Sport Law Partner, Dina Bell-Laroche.
