Rollits has been in Hull since 1841 when its founder, John Rollit first qualified as a solicitor and opened his own law practice, in Bowlalley Lane. Over the last 175 years ago as the firm has continued to grow, it has occupied various premises within a stone's throw of each other in Hull's old town with its headquarters now at Citadel House, 58 High Street.
A company truly rooted in Hull, Rollits is proud to have been a Corporate Friend of Freedom for several years becoming a more significant sponsor last year when they supported the NCO’s Invisible People exhibition.
Pat Coyle, Client Relations Director, explained: "We are extremely proud of our roots and heritage and we have always seen our business as being part of and fully committed to the community in which we work. Our partnership with Freedom Festival allows us to play a small part in helping them deliver the high calibre of exciting and culturally relevant performances for which they have become nationally renowned.
"In particular, our support of Justice in Motion's ON EDGE which explores modern day slavery in the construction industry gives us the opportunity to highlight the challenges faced by us all in the fight to eradicate modern day slavery and exploitation.
"We need to continue to build on the success of Hull 2017 where ‘little-old’ Hull became a major player once again on the national and international stage. Hull was once great, and can be again! But it needs local business to continue to support the sector as this is central to realising the long-term ambitions of the city and sustain the feelings of civic pride which shone out during our year as City of Culture."
