VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - August 16, 2013) - Today McMillan LLP is proud to announce that it has signed a two-year partnership with the BC Lions Football Club. This agreement establishes McMillan as an Official Partner of the BC Lions.
"McMillan is thrilled to be the first law firm in Canada to become an official partner of the BC Lions," said Karl Gustafson, QC, Office Management Partner for McMillan's Vancouver office. "McMillan sees a natural fit between our firm values -- respect, teamwork, commitment, client service and professional excellence, and those values exhibited by the BC Lions -- pride, decades of tradition, passion and a spirit of excellence."
With the BC Lions celebrating their 60th season in the CFL, the agreement further solidifies McMillan's commitment to the local community. "Supporting our local community is a McMillan core value closely held by the lawyers and employees in Vancouver," said Gustafson. "We are excited to assist and support the Lions in their community outreach initiatives, particularly Courage For Kids, which aims to give thousands of children the opportunity to attend a BC Lions home game."
"We are very pleased to welcome McMillan LLP to the BC Lions family," said president and CEO Dennis Skulsky. "With western Canadian roots that date back to the 1920's, McMillan brings decades of legal expertise and advice to our organization. This unique and groundbreaking partnership with an iconic name such as McMillan combined with their desire to extend corporate identity and community outreach across British Columbia, speaks to the growing strength of our brand as the Pride of all BC."
