One of Yorkshire’s leading law firms Rollits LLP has announced that they are now a City Partner to Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
Over the last 175 years, Rollits have been based in Hull’s old town and are truly part of the fabric of the city. Their lawyers have a long tradition of being actively involved in the work of local charities, as well as the schools, churches and politics that have all shaped what our city is like today.
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.
This is our city and our heritage, and we are proud to be part of this transformational year.
