Blacks becomes member of Yorkshire business group

Blacks Solicitors has joined Yorkshire’s Y30 Partnership.

Coinciding with the firm’s 30th anniversary, Blacks has joined a collective of businesses that are passionate, innovative, and ambitious about the region.

The firm will share and develop ideas with influencers and thought leaders from Yorkshire, to make improvements to communities in the region, as well as support its economic growth by attracting more visitors, businesses and investors.

Chris Allen, managing partner at Blacks, said: “We are very proud of our position as a leading law firm in the heart of Yorkshire. A large proportion of our staff and clientele are based here, and so it’s important we give something back with this partnership.”

“Yorkshire has so much to offer from both a business and tourism perspective. We believe it’s vital that businesses in the region work closely together to form relationships, continue to innovate, and as a result strengthen our economy.”

Awarded Medium Law Firm of the Year at the Yorkshire Legal Awards in 2018, Blacks is committed to supporting the local community demonstrated through a series of initiatives, including supporting local charities, community volunteering and participating in school mentoring schemes.

Peter Dodd, commercial director at Welcome to Yorkshire, said “We’re delighted to welcome the award-winning Blacks Solicitors as a Y30 partner and we’re looking forward to exciting times ahead collaborating with this highly regarded and forward-thinking Yorkshire law firm.”

“With a strong passion for the county, both organisations will work together, continuing to encourage growth and development in Yorkshire, as well as attracting and increasing further investment and tourism opportunities.”
