Tigers give a lift to new law firm at Timo

Mike Cummins gets a lift to kick off his new business from Leicester Tigers (L-R) Tom Croft, Geordan Murphy, Martin Castrogiovanni & Marcos Ayerza

Employment law is a bit of a jungle, so it was good a bunch of Tigers showed their support for new Leicestershire firm Cummins Solicitors at its launch party.

Six rugby players from Leicester Tigers played a key role at the event, to mark the establishment of Leicester’s new boutique law firm specialising in employment law.

Cummins Solicitors has been set up by Mike Cummins, a former employment law partner at both Freeth Cartwright and HBJ Gateley Wareing.

Mike choose to host the party for more than 200 guests – contacts, customers and colleagues – at Timo Restaurant in Market Harborough, which is managed by his friend Dario Galoppi.

The investors in the Italian restaurant include Tigers international heroes Martin Castrogiovanni and Geordan Murphy. They were joined by teammates Toby Flood, Tom Croft, Horacio Agulla and Marcus Ayerza.

Martin said: “Setting up a business is a massive step. It’s all about working hard and having the ambition to achieve and I know Mike will be successful.

“It’s great to welcome so many of Mike’s friends to Timo; we’ve had the restaurant open about six months now and it is great to see lots of new faces in for the party.”

Mike said: “It was a great to announce the arrival of the new business surrounded by Tigers players who know what it takes to win. I’ll take great inspiration from them.”

Mike has been joined by two former colleagues: practice manager Lyndsay Jordan; and new fee-earning recruit, senior associate Kay Greig. Kay worked with Mike at both Freeth Cartwright and HBJ Gateley Wareing, while Lyndsay was at Howes Percival after working with Mike at HBJ Gateley Wareing.

Cummins’ clients include business employers from across the country, with many based in Leicestershire and the East Midlands.

Mike said: “As an expert on employment law, I feel the time is right for there to be a niche legal practice focused on this complicated area for employers. Our expertise means we are 100 per cent focused on helping employers manage workforces.”
