PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 8, 2024) – Rutgers Athletics and Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq (GGL) have reached a multi-year agreement to make GGL the department’s first-ever Official Law Firm Partner. GGL will receive significant brand integration in Jersey Mike’s Arena, SHI Stadium and across official Scarlet Knights digital media platforms.

“We at GGL are extremely proud to be aligned with Rutgers University one of the nation’s premier institutions,” said Lawrence Lebrocq. “We are excited to partner with Rutgers to promote their advancements in education, athletics and community development. Our first endeavor with Rutgers will be in support of Eric LeGrand at his Walk to Believe on September 7 before the football game against Akron. Please join us in supporting the fight against paralysis.”

“We are excited to enter into this first-of-its-kind partnership with Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq,” said Lisa Tirrell, President/CEO, SAMCO. “GGL has made a career of service to the community and their support of the R Heroes program, and Team LeGrand illustrates that commitment.”

When the 2024 football season kicks off, GGL will serve as the presenting sponsor for the Scarlet Knights’ match up with Akron on September 7. GGL will also sponsor “R Heroes” which is part of the annual Military Appreciation Day programing at SHI Stadium.

The ticket initiative provides fans an opportunity to donate tickets to active-duty and veteran service members of the armed forces.

In addition to the law firm’s enhancement of the fan experience at SHI Stadium and Jersey Mike’s Arena, GGL branding will be present at Bainton Field and the Rutgers Softball Complex.

As part of the partnership, GGL will be integrated into social media content to showcase student-athletes and their communities, alongside digital promotions via Rutgers Athletics channels to win a trip to a road football game as well as VIP men’s basketball experiences.
