London, UK – Global law firm Sullivan is pleased to announce its sponsorship of "Wild Waves" one of the teams rowing the Atlantic Ocean as part of the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. ‘Wild Waves’ rowers Jessica Oliver and Charlotte Harris aim to raise over £100,000 for Shelter and Women’s Aid.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is considered to be the world’s toughest row, and will begin on December 12, 2021.

The challenge will take around 60 days, with Jessica and Charlotte each rowing two hours on, then two hours off, around the clock. They will face sleep deprivation, sea sickness, blisters, 100ft waves, raging storms and uncertain sea life.

Other sponsors include GE Healthcare, NMS Infrastructure Limited, and Global Trade Review (GTR), among others.

Mark Norris, trade and export finance partner at Sullivan in London commented: “This is a momentous challenge, and one which Sullivan as a firm is delighted to be involved with.  Shelter and Women’s Aid provide life-changing and life-saving support and assistance within our communities and Sullivan is very pleased to be able to partner with Jessica and Charlotte to raise critical financing for these two vital charities.”
