Rollits shows its support for Hull 2017

One of Hull’s leading law firms Rollits LLP has announced it has become a City Partner to UK City of Culture 2017.

Over the last 175 years Rollits, which has a long tradition of its lawyers being actively involved in local charities, churches, schools and politics, has occupied various premises, all within a stone's throw of each other in Hull's old town.

As part of the partnership, Rollits has agreed to second a Trainee Solicitor to Hull 2017 for 18 months as well as providing a legal helpline service for the company.

Ralph Gilbert, Managing Partner, Rollits LLP, said: “We are rooted in Hull and our partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017 allows us to play a small part in helping to deliver an amazing year-long festival of eclectic events throughout the year.

“This is our city and our heritage, and we are proud to be part of this transformational year, helping to make Hull a better place for the people who live and work here.

“Our founding partners played a major part in the development of the city and we see 2017 as a golden opportunity for Hull to shine on the local, national and international stage.”

 

Martin Green, CEO and Director of Hull 2017, added: “With such strong and long-standing roots in Hull dating back to 1841, Rollits plays an integral part in the culture of the city so we are delighted to welcome them on board.”
