Rugby League Cares is delighted to announce a new partnership with UK Top 100 law firm Ward Hadaway that will give professional Rugby League players access to expert legal advice and services.
With offices in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle, Ward Hadaway’s highly-experienced and specialist team of lawyers can advise players on all areas of law, including family and matrimonial matters, wills and estate planning, buying and selling businesses, disputes, prosecutions and property matters.
Ward Hadaway is the latest major company to join the Rugby League Cares Business Club, which was set up last year to give professional players access to a range of services that can enhance their lives away from the rugby field.
The firm joins All Sport Insurance, Stratstone BMW, Barclays Premier Banking and Frank Exchange as members of the Business Club, and Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, believes Ward Hadaway will be a valued member of the game’s community.
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Ward Hadaway to the Rugby League Cares Business Club,” said Chris. “It is fantastic to have such a prestigious law firm as Ward Hadaway as a partner and I am sure they will make a huge difference to the players who need legal advice or representation.
“Our Business Club aims to put the needs of the players first, and Ward Hadaway’s approach and values make them an ideal partner.”
Ward Hadaway has experience of working with individuals, families and businesses, and players can expect to receive rounded, high quality and cost effective legal advice from the most appropriate expert.
Martin Karran, the Head of family law in the firm’s Manchester office, said: “This is a fantastic partnership for us, as much as it is for Rugby League Cares. Our approach to providing legal advice is strongly based upon our sense of responsibility as a service business.
“It is wonderful for us to be able to provide meaningful support and make a real difference to the Rugby League community with our expertise in the areas of both personal and business law. Particular praise must go to Jodi Seddon who has worked tirelessly with Chris Rostron to establish this partnership.”
