The North West’s only solely commercial law firm has been appointed by Lifeline, the national drug, alcohol and treatment advice service charity. The brief will see Taylors advise on all employment law, business strategy, commercial and reputational matters.

The Manchester based charity provides a diverse range of services for young people and adults across the North West and North East, Yorkshire, London and the Midlands, including recovery and peer mentoring, harm minimisation, day programmes, prescribing and shared care, community detoxification services, criminal justice and prison initiatives.

The charity had previously worked with Taylor’s Head of Employment and partner Will Clayton. Following his move to the business in December 2011, Lifeline was keen to continue the successful working relationship with him.

Commenting on Taylor’s appointment, Ian Wardle, Chief Executive of the Lifeline Project said:

“Will has been Lifeline's principal legal advisor for over 15 years and during that time has not only been an integral part of our success, but provided us with great creativity, resourcefulness and above all shown great loyalty and integrity."

"Our move to appoint Taylors will not only allow us to continue to benefit from Will’s counsel but take advantage of Taylors wide ranging experience in commercial law and we look forward to working with the team.”

Will Clayton, Head of Employment and Partner at Taylors said:

"Over the years I’ve seen Lifeline grow from a relatively small but leading edge Manchester force to become a highly regarded and respected national provider of drug and alcohol advice and treatment services."

"I'm delighted that I will continue to act for the business – the work has great variety, quality and purpose; the management team is extremely hard working and dedicated to what they do and it is a pleasure to work alongside them."

Elaine Hurn, Senior Partner at Taylors said:

"The UK public sector service provision is growing more dependent on third sector organisations today than ever before. It is a strong and important sector of our regional and national economy and one that Taylors recognises as important for the future development of the firm."
