Kevin Sinfield signs with Yorkshire Legal People
Mon 20 Feb 2017
Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors has recently announced a long-term partnership with Leeds Rhinos and England rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield.
Over the next 12 months the rugby star will act as an ambassador for the firm as part of its ‘Chadwick Lawrence Way’ strategy and its aim to become Yorkshire’s best law firm.
In his role as ambassador, Kevin - who captained Leeds Rhinos for thirteen years before retiring in 2016 - will attend a number of events with colleagues and clients.
He will meet clients and contacts of the firm and provide an insight into his time as one of the great leaders in Rugby League. He will also deliver to the Chadwick Lawrence team insight into leadership and personal development skills transferrable from the pitch to the office.
The partnership came about thanks to Chadwick Lawrence’s long standing legal partnership with Leeds Rhinos. For 10 years the firm has provided legal services for the club, many of their players and staff, and support to the Leeds Rugby Foundation.
“I have known Kevin for over 10 years, working with him through the firm and he undoubtedly brings a great profile with him,” said Neil Wilson, Managing Partner at Chadwick Lawrence,
“He is a great leader, and embodies what we believe to be the core values of Chadwick Lawrence and the Chadwick Lawrence way. He leads by example, and we are looking forward to learning from him as we work together over the coming months.”
“I have known Neil Wilson and Chadwick Lawrence for many years and I have experienced first-hand the high levels of service which they work to,” said Kevin Sinfield. “I am aware of the great progress on culture change Neil and his colleagues are embedding in the business and I am really looking forward to being a part of the Chadwick Lawrence Way and enhancing that where I can”.
