Buckles Solicitors announced as NCBC headline sponsor

Buckles Solicitors LLP has officially been announced as the new headline sponsor of Nottingham City Business Club.

Nottingham City Business Club (NCBC) is the oldest business networking club outside of London and will celebrate its one hundredth year in 2024. Keen to establish a headline sponsor, NCBC has agreed a deal with Nottingham-based Buckles Solicitors – a regular attendee of the club’s events and former headline sponsor from 2017 to 2020 – to resume its position as headline sponsor.

NCBC’s membership is currently made up of 80 individual businesses with each member having the opportunity to attend 10 in-person lunches per year at Nottingham’s Park Plaza Hotel, alongside a range of social events and an annual charity golf day.

Buckles Solicitors is a well-established and expanding law firm with offices in London, Cambridge, Nottingham, Peterborough, Stamford, Paris and Milan. Its team of legal specialists deliver a comprehensive range of legal services to businesses and individuals in the UK and internationally across various sectors, with particular expertise in planning and environmental law, construction and engineering, rail, employment, company and commercial law, commercial disputes and dispute resolution, together with private client wealth preservation and estate planning services. The firm also remains committed to supporting family businesses and entrepreneurs.

In 2015, Buckles was awarded LawNet’s “Law Firm of the Year” award and the firm was complimented for its exemplary client and employee care, clear strategic direction and sustained financial performance.

Nigel Rowlson, President of Nottingham City Business Club and Managing Director of The Dairy Creative Agency, is delighted to welcome Buckles on board once again as the club’s headline sponsor and sees this as a great opportunity for both parties.

“As face-to-face events resume and our one hundredth anniversary nears, having Buckles on board again is great news for the club.”

“We really want to drive success for NCBC not just in the short-term, but the long-term too – and welcoming Buckles back as our headline sponsor really adds value to our events. Likewise, this is a great opportunity for Buckles to raise its profile further and engage with Nottingham’s business community,”

He continues, “One of my main aims when I became president was to increase the number of members and engage with a growing number of local speakers at our events. The pandemic meant that we lost some of our member base but we’re now increasing our numbers rapidly again and we’re excited to have a number of great local entrepreneurs as guest speakers this season – including Tesla, East Midlands Airport, Doughnotts and DHP Family/Rock City”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Buckles for agreeing to be our main sponsor again and I’m looking forward to us forming a long and healthy partnership.”

James Coppinger, Partner and Head of Nottingham office at Buckles Solicitors, commented on the company’s decision to renew its sponsorship of NCBC this year.

“Given our proven track record of assisting businesses in Nottingham and across the region, and our long-standing links with NCBC, we’re delighted to have this role within the network. The monthly lunches and networking events are always very well organised and the range of speakers the club attracts is inspirational. It’s great for us to be involved once again!”
