Supporting Rugby League Cares with Legal Expertise

March 4, 2021, By

We have teamed up with Rugby League Cares to provide the Rugby League playing community access to our progressive legal advice and exceptional service across personal and business related matters.

Specialists here at Slater Heelis will be on hand to provide support and trusted legal services to current and former players and their families at every level of the sport, including Super League, Championship, League 1, Women’s Super League, the England Performance Unit and the community game.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said:We are delighted to welcome Slater Heelis as the official legal partner of our Business Club and are looking forward to working with them to provide enhanced opportunities for players and their families. 

“Slater Heelis come highly recommended and are already working with members of the Rugby League family: they understand the sport and the needs of the people in it, which is really important for us.

“This partnership reaffirms the charity’s commitment to giving our playing community access to the very best services and opportunities that exist.”

We look forward to providing specialised workshops and events for the community connected through Rugby League Cares, as well as benefitting from their own expertise in terms of additional high level support to ameliorate our wellbeing offering for staff.

Charlotte Beck, Partner in our Family Team, said: “I am really excited and proud to announce this partnership with RL Cares. 

“We are committed to helping and supporting those associated with the sport through not only the good times with new purchases and business ventures, but also when times are tough. 

“We are dedicated to being a strong addition to the RL Cares team and will ensure practical and personal service to anyone who needs it.”

Tailored to specific needs

We know when acting for clients in any area of our business, it is important to understand their specific needs and what outcomes they want to achieve.

RL Cares is delighted to have the guidance and advice if partner-led teams to support its players- whether that is the family team who will offer support through separation, divorce and arranging contact with children or, advising on ways to protect assets; the property team who will guide clients through their next house purchase or commercial property venture; the corporate and employment team who can help clients manage their employees and grow their business.

We look forward to seeing this partnership flourish, and to hopefully have some real-life contact with the RL Cares community over the coming months.
