Wilkin Chapman pledges commitment to the Armed Forces community
THE REGION’S largest law firm, Wilkin Chapman solicitors, has demonstrated its support for Defence personnel by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
In signing the Covenant, the firm commits to support the Armed Forces community, recognising the value that serving personnel, regular and reserve, veterans and military families contribute to society.
The Covenant ensures that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces and their families, are treated with fairness, respect and face no disadvantage.
With offices across Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire and a history spanning more than 100 years, Wilkin Chapman sits at the heart of some of the country’s most important military bases both past and present.
Signing the Covenant on behalf of the firm, Senior Partner Andrew Holt was joined by Partner James Marsden who is the Military sector lead.
James said: “Wilkin Chapman has a long-established and proud association with the Military across the region. We are honoured to be pledging our further support.
“By signing the Covenant, we are demonstrating the firm’s commitment to a continued and growing relationship with the country’s Services’ personnel,” he added.
Andrew Holt added: “I am delighted that we have pledged our support to the Military with the signing of this covenant. We have a team of specialist lawyers who really understand the Military sector and the legal support that they need. The covenant highlights our commitment to the sector.”
Lt Col Richard Forsyth, commanding officer of the Training Regiment, said: “I am very pleased that Wilkin Chapman has taken this opportunity to sign the Armed Forces Covenant.
“They understand the benefits that Defence personnel can bring to their business and through their military law specialisation have a great understanding of how to support members of the Armed Forces community,” he added.
