Squire Patton Boggs is supporting four athletes, three of whom will be competing in the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games, through the Performance Pact Scheme, run by Fondation du Sport Français.

The athletes are light flyweight boxer Wassila Lkhadiri, weightlifter Marie-Josèphe Fegue, Thibaud Lefrançois, a member of the French sitting volleyball team and Greco-Roman wrestler Ibrahim Ghanem.

The Performance Pact enables companies and individuals to sponsor French athletes, contributing to the cost of sports equipment, training and travel.

“We are very pleased to support the Fondation du Sport Français in its work to promote the development of sport in France and support young athletes in their quest to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” commented Carole Sportes, managing partner of Squire Patton Boggs in Paris. “In meeting these young athletes, we have been inspired by their determination and commitment to pursue their goals, and through the Performance Pact Scheme we can help them continue to succeed.”

Founded nearly 30 years ago, the firm’s Paris office now has 60 lawyers providing legal service across all areas of business law. The firm has a long history of representing athletes, sports academies, governing bodies and national Olympic committees on the legal, commercial and regulatory issues affecting them.
