"A fantastic firm to work with" is Worcestershire CCC General Manager Jon Graham's description of QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright who have renewed their sponsorship deal as the County's official legal partner.

A fruitful initial 12 months during the County's 150th Anniversary Year has led to the partnership between Worcestershire CCC and QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright being extended for 2016.

The association with Worcestershire CCC began when QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright took out Elite memberships in The View at New Road for the 2014 season and has flourished from there.

It is a two-way tie-up with Parkinson Wright introducing many clients to Worcestershire who might otherwise not attend New Road whilst Parkinson Wright benefit from the tie-up and higher profile of being associated with such a well respected organisation inside the County and nationwide.

Sharon Chance, business development manager at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright said: "Jon (Graham) and I wanted this to be a partnership that would support and complement each other.

"We are proud be the official legal partners to one of the major county cricket clubs. "

Cyril Arridge, Managing Partner at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright said: "We are delighted to continue the legal partnership with the WCCC.

"We have developed a strong working relationship with both the Management and their team and look forward to working with them again this season."

QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright is part of a national network of law firms with offices located in Worcester, Droitwich, Evesham and St Johns.

Their solicitors provide expert legal advice to individuals and businesses local to Worcestershire and nationwide with excellent customer service at the heart of everything they do.

Jon Graham said: "The partnership was a major success last year and we are really happy they are back on board this year.

"It is a fantastic firm to work with from a business point of view but also a fantastic supporter of everything the club does.

"They always have a presence at all of our events, are massive supporters of the club, even to the point where Joe Leach has done work placements with them which hopefully will help him with his career – although not too soon hopefully! – beyond cricket.

"It is really a fantastic for the club because they bring a lot of clients to New Road that we might not normally see.

"It gives us an opportunity to show business within their network what we are about and if they like what they see, hopefully it is an opportunity for other partnerships by means of an introduction through Parkinson Wright.

"From a commercial point of view, it is very easy to talk about partnersships and two-way streets – but it is vital we do that.

"If the partners can see we are bringing things to the table as a club which helps promotes their brand and hopefully generates them business, then they would always see the value in working with us."
