Our local community

Commitment to the local region

Our 174 year heritage means that we understand local business and their issues.  We see the success of our business as being parallel to the success and development of the region.  We take an active part in supporting the region and are proactive in our support of its growth and wellbeing.  For example, Nick Abel, our Chairman, is Vice President of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), 32 members of our team sit on a total of 50 Boards of companies and charities across the region, we are the legal partners for the Wasps rugby, Wasps netball team and the Ricoh arena.  We are also members of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber, a club member of Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 and active members of Coventry & Warwickshire Champions and Coventry First.

In addition we provide support, through sponsorship, a number of clubs and societies throughout the region, for example: the Side by Side Theatre; Leamington RFC; Stratford cricket club; Coventry Cosairs; Old Leamingtonians RFC; and have, for the last 16 years, been the prime sponsor of the Wright Hassall Leamington Recency 10k run.

Free legal clinic

We also provide a free legal clinic to the local community which celebrated its second birthday in August 2019.  It is held on the first Tuesday of each month at our offices.  Since the start of the programme, we have helped over 100 people with a wide range of issues including matrimonial, visitation of children, contentious probate issues, setting up a charity, defending small claims disputes, boundary issues, landlord and tenant disputes. Feedback has been consistently positive and the following comment is representative people’s experience:

"I was delighted with the service I received and wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your efforts"

Our Charitable Trust

The Wright Hassall Charitable Trust was established with the aim of supporting local charities.

As one of the largest law firms in the Midlands we are conscious of our responsibilities not only to our team but also to the wider community of which we are very much part. Thanks to this position we are uniquely placed to offer help to local charities that may not get the same type of exposure as the larger national and international charities.

We raise funds by holding various sponsored activities and events throughout the year so this is an initiative that has the full support of our employees.

Our regular fundraising events include:-

  • The annual Wright Hassall quiz
  • Raffles at our annual winter and summer parties
  • Dress down days

We encourage our employees to propose grants to charities that they are involved with personally, either as volunteers or through circumstance.
