Forbes Solicitors have agreed a three-year deal to become joint sponsors of East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce's International Trade Club.
The partnership, which also involves Baldwin's Accountants, begins on May 1 and will allow International Trade Club members access to Forbes' expertise and advice in manufacturing and other sectors.
The deal builds on Forbes existing close relationship with the International Trade Club, with Associate solicitor John Pickervance already involved with the club. John previously presented at breakfast meetings and delivers training on a regular basis for the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. The sponsorship commitment recognizes the mutually compatible services and expertise from the sponsors and the Club which can be brought to businesses in Lancashire.
John, Head of Forbes' Manufacturing & Engineering group, said: "Our sponsorship of the International Trade Club sits well with our manufacturing sector specialism and we are looking forward to building on our excellent relationship with the International Trade Club over the next three years."
The sponsorship deal includes a series of breakfast meetings and the International Trade Awards and luncheon ceremony, giving Chamber members the chance to meet and discuss issues with the Forbes team.
Mandy Lockett, International Business Director at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, added: "This is a great opportunity for our members to work closely with the experts at Forbes to grow their businesses in such a key area.
"We are very grateful to John and all the team at Forbes for their ongoing support."
