International law firm Hill Dickinson has renewed its sponsorship of the Clipper Round the World Yacht 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.
Hill Dickinson’s association with the biennial Clipper Race began more than a decade ago in 2004 when the 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.
Tony Allen, head of Hill Dickinson’s yacht team, said: “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.”
The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race will celebrate its 10th edition when it sets sail on August 30 from London’s St Katharine Docks.
