Published on 10/03/2020
Dan Maskell Tennis Trust and BLM are delighted to announce a new partnership whereby BLM becomes the official legal services partner to Dan Maskell Tennis Trust. In addition, BLM’s Private Wealth and Family Law team will sponsor the 2020 Recreational Wheelchair Tennis Doubles Event.
This is the first partnership of its kind for Dan Maskell Tennis Trust – Chairman Sue Wolstenholme OBE commented “We were delighted when BLM approached us with the idea of working together. BLM’s reputation and the varied services they offer make them a perfect partner for the Charity. We hope to encourage our range of contacts to take advantage of their expertise in all the areas they cover. We are especially pleased that BLM will sponsor our Recreational Wheelchair Tennis Doubles Event which takes place at the Oxstalls Tennis Centre in Gloucester on the 23rd-24th May”.
BLM Senior Partner and member of the firm’s EDI steering committee, Matthew Harrington, added: “BLM is very selective about the charitable organisations with whom we partner. Beyond just being an exclusive provider of legal services to the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust and its members, BLM firmly believes that equality, diversity and inclusion are essential for all and The Trust’s work, in rehabilitating through sport, reflects our own corporate values - courage, teamwork and focus. We are a proud sponsor of the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust.”
