Our decision to partner with The Sport Industry Awards reflects the confidence we have in the strength of their brand and the opportunities we can create together. Given that the roll of honour for Sport Brand of the Year includes some of the most powerful brands in the world it gives me great pleasure to place Pinsent Masons alongside the likes of Adidas, Manchester United FC and the calibre of other partners of the Sport Industry Group.  I look forward to seeing which brands add their names to that list in 2012.”
