Hill Dickinson renews Clipper Race sponsorship
28 July 2015
International law firm, Hill Dickinson, has renewed its sponsorship as Official Legal Partner of the Clipper Race.
The firm, which has an international network of offices and is renowned for its specialist marine knowledge, will provide legal advice and support to the Clipper 2015-16 Race and use its partnership to engage with both staff and clients in key markets around the world.
Tony Allen, head of Hill Dickinson’s yacht team, said: “The Clipper 2015-16 Round the World Yacht Race marks the momentous tenth edition of this global event and is set to be a particularly memorable experience for all involved. As the Official Legal Partner we will ensure that our expertise from our UK and overseas offices is applied at every stage of the race in order to fully support the organisers and allow the participants to concentrate on winning their race.”
Hill Dickinson’s association with the Clipper Race began more than a decade ago in 2004 when the award-winning law firm was appointed as Official Lawyers to Liverpool 2008 as part of the city’s successful bid to become European Capital of Culture. As such the firm became race partners to Liverpool 2008’s entry in the Clipper 2005-06 Race and was introduced to the global marketing opportunities the race delivers to its sponsors and partners.
The Clipper 2015-16 Race will be the biggest event yet with over 700 crew taking part from over 40 different countries, providing an even stronger global platform for Hill Dickinson to connect with its international network of offices and clients and in the marine industry.
Sir Robin welcomed the announcement saying: “We have enjoyed
working with Hill Dickinson for more than a decade now so I am pleased we are
able to continue our excellent relationship and welcome them back as Official
Legal Partner for the Clipper 2015-16 Race.”
