Our Sports Review captures the very best of the local sports clubs that we sponsor. Paul Robinson Solicitors LLP sponsors many sports clubs including cricket, football and rugby clubs from the local area.
In March West Ham opened the new Billy Bonds stand. Billy Bonds said that it was ‘an honour, I’m overwhelmed and emotional’. On 8th May West Ham had their annual player awards. 10 Partners and staff from Paul Robinson Solicitors went on the night and saw Lukasz Fabianski awarded Hammer of the Year and Declan Rice awarded Players Player of the Year among many other awards on the night.
