British Rowing launches new Legal Helpline powered by Irwin Mitchell

The new initiative includes a free-to-access telephone helpline and online portal for all British Rowing affiliated clubs

British Rowing has today announced a new, free-to-access legal and tax advice service for its affiliated clubs, in partnership with British Rowing’s Official Legal Partner, Irwin Mitchell.

The service enables all affiliated clubs to obtain free advice over the phone on any legal or tax related matter, and also gives them access to an online portal of documents including standard agreements and template legal documents.

Since joining as British Rowing’s Official Legal Partner in June 2021, Irwin Mitchell has already been working in partnership with British Rowing’s in-house legal team to support our legal needs and the helpline is designed to offer additional practical support.

Kenny Baillie, Director of Partnerships and Communications at British Rowing, said: “We’re really pleased to be launching the legal helpline and portal for our affiliated clubs today. It’s a real priority for us to ensure our clubs are as well-equipped, supported and informed as possible, so it’s fantastic to be able to bring them this exciting and practical new offer thanks to our partnership with Irwin Mitchell.”

Speaking ahead of the launch of the British Rowing helpline, Alex Lloyd, Head of Contact at Irwin Mitchell said: “We’re delighted to be in a position to launch this legal helpline for British Rowing as a key part of our ongoing package of support measures to make life easier for their in-house teams and rowing clubs across the country.

“Our helplines have proved a big success in supporting some of our great sporting bodies to focus on what they do best and we’re proud to be initiating the same service for British Rowing.

“Thanks to the pandemic, the last few years have been anything but normal for British sport but there is much to be positive about and we’re looking forward to helping British Rowing make the most of the opportunities ahead.”
