Castleford Tigers has announced a partnership with nationwide law firm Michael Lewin Solicitors (MLS).
The partnership will see MLS oversee human resource and health and safety services at the club, while they will also feature on pitch side advertising at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle throughout the 2014 Super League season.
Established in 2001, Michael Lewin Solicitors has grown from a local law firm to a large nationwide practice with five offices in Leeds, offering a variety of legal services, including employment law, debt collection services, financial mis-selling, personal injury and industrial disease.
On the partnership, Ian Abel, head of employment, said: “We are delighted to be providing Castleford Tigers with our TLC (Total Legal Care) package.
“We take great pride in providing the very highest standards of customer care and we’re looking forward to working closely with the Tigers to ensure that everyone associated with the club benefits from our hard work and unrivalled knowledge of the legal sector.
“We also hope the partnership will allow us to develop our brand in the Castleford area and tap in to the local business community, of which the Tigers are a big part.”
Tigers commercial manager Richard Pell said: “We are very pleased to partner with Michael Lewin Solicitors whose expertise and experience will be a great asset to the club.
“We have invested a lot of effort into several aspects of the club during the off season and it’s important that we pay as much attention to the legal side of things to not compromise our work, which is where this collaboration comes in.
“MLS will surely gain even more exposure for their work by featuring on pitchside advertising boards next season too which is a fantastic way to get in front of thousands every week.”
