A FAMILY-run law firm is showing its support to a local sports club after its recent launch.
Husband and wife duo, Tahina Akther and David Robinson soft launched their law firm, Wildcat Law, in August 2021, before officially launching in May.
The Fair Oak couple have just signed a three-year deal with Fair Oak Cricket Club to be the club’s official sponsor.
With their son playing at the club and Tahina recently signing up for the women’s W10 softball team, the cricket club is something that is close to the pair’s heart.
Tahina said: ‘Since being involved with the club for personal reasons, we’ve discovered how important diversity and inclusivity is to them, and that’s something we feel very strongly about here at Wildcat Law too. We’ve seen first-hand the work they do to support and help to grow people from all backgrounds, getting people from all walks of life into sport, and it’s something we’re super passionate about supporting. The Club’s president Tony Oxley is often heard saying that Fair Oak Cricket Club is “More than just a cricket club”.
Tahina said: ‘We’re looking forward to being part of the club and getting involved with the many exciting things going on within it – and getting involved with the cricket ourselves, too!’
The firm will provide financial support to club to allow them to improve the kits.
Its logo will appear on the kits for all the teams, from juniors to seniors, for the duration of the three-year sponsorship.
Tahina, a barrister of almost 20 years and David, former capability director and chartered wealth manager at private bank Coutts and Co, decided to launch Wildcat Law to bring something new and innovative to the profession.
They are aiming to break the moulds and bust stereotypes of law firms being stuffy, over-formal and male-dominated, bringing a more informal and flexible way of working that is new and unique.
Since its launch, it already has a network of 10 lawyers working within it from Hampshire and the rest of the UK, with Tahina and David keen to provide more opportunities for junior lawyers.
David said: ‘We’re trying to bring innovation into a very traditional space, putting our own unique spin on things where possible. Unlike most law firms we have barristers and Solicitors whilst our meetings are nearly all virtual which means someone in Fair Oak can meet with a London based solicitor without having to face the trains.’
The firm specialises in family, probate and company law and while it is based out of Fair Oak, Wildcat operates across the UK.
