Last Updated: 18 January 2012

Middletons enters its seventh year as official law firm of the Australian Open highlighting the firm's ongoing successful partnership with Tennis Australia. Speaking about the sponsorship, Middletons national managing partner Nick Nichola said, "The Australian Open is an iconic Australian event and one with which Middletons has become synonymous. We are delighted to continue to work with Tennis Australia to enable it to put on one of the world's greatest tennis tournaments which we can share with our clients and staff."

Middletons supports Tennis Australia's existing in-house legal team by providing strategic advice in relation to the Australian Open tournament and broader organisational operations in areas of law including television and multi-media broadcasting contracts, domestic and international global sponsorship deals, licensing schemes, supply arrangements, taxation and stamp duty, employment law and commercial litigation.

Speaking about the synergies of the partnership, Mr Nichola said, "At Middletons, we focus on service much like the leading tennis stars. Our ethos is to deliver the best imaginable client service experience through our straight talking approach to providing legal advice."

The Australian Open kicks off the tennis calendar in January every year at Melbourne Park. The tournament typically has very high attendances with the 2010 Australian Open achieving the highest ever day/night attendance record for any grand slam tournament with an overall attendance in excess of 600,000.
