Leading legal firm Forbes Solicitors has joined the county's growing network of Lancashire Ambassadors.
Forbes, which has offices across Lancashire in Blackburn (two), Accrington, Walton Summit, Preston and Chorley, is ranked as a Legal 500 Top Tier Firm and a Chambers and Partners Leading Firm.
Lancashire Ambassadors, launched by Marketing Lancashire, brings together Lancashire business leaders who share a passion for the county's success and a desire to champion Lancashire's world leading businesses and sectors.
Together their unwavering pride, entrepreneurial spirit and relentless energy in pursuit of the economic possibilities for Lancashire, will help shape and drive the county's future success.
A group of well-known Lancastrians, including the very first Lancashire Ambassador, Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff, has also committed to helping Marketing Lancashire promote the county nationally and internationally for the greater prosperity of those who invest, live and work in the Red Rose county.
Andrew appears in a rousing video created for the launch of the Lancashire Ambassadors which celebrates the county's unique qualities and assets.
Pauline Rigby, Partner and head of the Corporate team at Forbes, said: "Although Forbes Solicitors has offices across the North our roots are firmly based in Lancashire.
"We recognise the importance of telling the world what an amazing place Lancashire is and the benefits of marketing it both nationally and internationally and we want to play our part in that."
Rachel McQueen, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire, said: "We are really thrilled to have such strong advocates for Lancashire on board; amplifying the Lancashire brand amongst their peers and contributing their expertise to new ideas to help generate growth and investment in Lancashire.
"Companies like Forbes Solicitors, with a proud Lancashire heritage, are essential to the success of the Lancashire Ambassadors programme and we hope the initiative shown by them will inspire other businesses to take part."
