Solicitors bring us sunshine

Here are our main sponsors for this year’s prestige Visitor awards ceremony and it looks like they’re in the party mood!

Wright and Lord Solicitors have very kindly agreed to sponsor our Sunshine Ball on Friday, May 10, when we will honour deserving people who have done their bit for Morecambe.

The Sunshine Ball is part of our annual Morecambe Day celebrations, held to mark the birthday of our town’s favourite son Eric Morecambe.

So when staff at Wright and Lord had the chance to pay their own tribute to Eric’s famous specs, they didn’t pass it up!

Wright and Lord Solicitors first opened its doors to the public in January 2001. It was set up from scratch by Stephen Wright and the late Simon Lord on the corner of Victoria Street and Northumberland Street in central Morecambe.

Within just a few years Wright and Lord Solicitors had established themselves as one of the major providers of legal services in the district.

The firm has taken great pride in delivering legal services in innovative ways, with improved value for money whilst their clients enjoy the highest levels of care and comfort.

The Wright and Lord name promptly became synonymous with growth and success, further enhanced by its association and sponsorship of Morecambe Football Club. The three year shirt sponsorship deal culminated in victory at the new Wembley Stadium and promotion for the town’s club to the Football League for the first time in the its history.

In 2004, Wright and Lord bought the long established local firm of James Wilson Solicitors on Princes Crescent, Bare from where they continue to operate a thriving branch office, now incorporating a Furness Building Society agency.

The following year Wright and Lord Solicitors became club sponsors at Morecambe Cricket Club and this partnership has continued ever since.

Wright and Lord Solicitors has also sponsored amateur sports clubs such as Slyne with Hest Football Club, given practical assistance to charities and trusts as well as time and resources for the furtherance of community projects.

Last year Wright and Lord Solicitors opened a new office in Milnthorpe, Cumbria, converting in the process another empty building into comfortable, modern office space.

In the course of last year alone, Wright and Lord Solicitors increased the number of people it employs by 25%, and the firm is confident of its continued growth and success, despite the difficult economic climate.

A big thank you from The Visitor to everyone at Wright and Lord for their support.
