The Imps have today announced a new partnership with Wilkin Chapman, the largest law firm in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.
Wilkin Chapman will become involved in several key Club projects including the plan to develop the Stacey West stand into a community hub.
Oliver Tasker, Partner at Wilkin Chapman which has offices throughout Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire including Lincoln, added: “We have been looking to support Lincoln City Football Club for some time now and we are delighted to be involved with the Club at such a historic time in terms of results and growth. The Club has experienced fantastic success over the last few years and has ambitious plans that will benefit our City, the supporters and the wider community moving forwards. We will work with the Club on their continued journey and now have the opportunity to align our shared values to make our partnership and working relationship a great success.”
Wilkin Chapman will operate as the Club’s solicitors and legal partner.
Andrew Whitham, Head of Commercial at Lincoln City, said the partnership would benefit the League One club on a number of levels.
“Wilkin Chapman is one of the largest firms of solicitors in the wider region and is committed to supporting the communities it serves. The firm supports our plan to extend the Stacey West stand and create a versatile community area including classrooms and an inclusive meeting space.
“Community projects will be delivered from the Stacey West stand when the work is complete, and it is fabulous to have the support of Wilkin Chapman on this project as well as several other Club initiatives.”
Wilkin Chapman is one of the many businesses who support the Club via Imps Connect allowing them to increase their business profile across Lincolnshire with other members, whilst also supporting Lincoln City Football Club. Oliver Tasker also added “It is a great opportunity to get wider exposure and work with other business network members which is a real added value benefit. We would encourage more businesses to look at the benefits this will mutually offer them and the Club.”
