Worcestershire CCC are delighted to announce that QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright have become the club's new official legal partner for 2015 – with a view to the partnership becoming a fruitful and long term association.

Worcestershire commercial director Jon Graham said that QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright "are exactly the right sort of partner that the club is looking for."

Cyril Arridge, Managing Partner at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright, said "we were delighted that Jon Graham approached us with regard to becoming the WCCC legal partners.

"We see this as a great honour and an excellent opportunity to work closely with something so much at the heart of the county."

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.

The association with Worcestershire CCC began when QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright took out a membership at New Road for 2014 and has grown from there.

Sharon Chance, Business Development Manager at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright, said: "We are going into a partnership with the club so it is two-fold.

"We will be able to introduce people to New Road who have not been to the cricket club before.

"Everyone at Parkinson Wright sees this as the perfect year to link up as part of the 150th Anniversary Year of WCCC.

"The club has gone up into Division One and it is going to be a challenging year to stay where they are. They are going to need all the support they can get and we are going to be right behind them. It is an exciting time."

Jon Graham said: "QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright are exactly the right sort of partner that the club is looking for. They are well respected in their own sector, a really good brand, obviously part of the QualitySolicitors group which is a national entity.

"Certainly within Worcester, they are a well known brand and that is what we want to be associated with.

"We met some of the QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright team last year because they took out a membership with the club. It was really good to see them come to every fixture with different guests in attendance.

"That alone is massively important to us because, the more new people that come into the ground, is better from our point of view.

"I've worked really closely with Sharon over the last 12 months. She is an avid supporter of the club and what we are about.

"QualitySolicitors Parkinson-Wright have also supported other events we have done which we are grateful for.

"They supported the Chairman's lunch, the 150th Anniversary golf day, will be at the Mervyn King gala evening, and were here on Sunday with their clients for the start of the season.

"We want our partners to be here as much as they can so they can understand the investment they are making into the club is really good value for money.

"People will only understand the value of what we are giving if they can see it regularly and with Division One cricket, the 150th Anniversary, a vibrant membership, there is only one place the club is going and we want our partners to see it."

Graham added: "We've got a good track record of delivering what we say we will deliver and we want to build long term partnerships and not one year deals.

"It's about getting a brand out there for a long period of time so our supporters and business partners understand our legal partner is QualitySolicitors Parkinson-Wright, our main sponsor is Arctic Spas, our kit provider is Canterbury etc."
