The deal was announced today by representatives of the firm – who have offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Manchester and London – along with Thistle manager Jackie McNamara and director Greg Brown..
Also in attendance was defender Alan Archibald in the strip with the new sponsor emblazoned on, as well as some youth players dressed up as lawyers from Levitt LLP.
Greg Brown said: “From the club’s point of view it’s very important to put on the record just how appreciative we are of a local company – just round the corner – stepping up with their support for the remainder of the season.
“It’s great that we’re in this situation clearly developments over the last few weeks were very fast tracked and this has been a very good outcome.”
The sponsorship comes after previous sponsor MacB went into administration. This new deal, worth a five-figure sum, keeps the Firhill side in the exact financial situation they were before without the worry of a reduced income.
When asked whether or not it would run on until after the end of the season David McRae, Managing Director at Just Employment Law Vancouver said: “There’s a distinct possibility. We’ve signed up to the club until the end of the season and it’s up to the directors to see whether to further the relationship. It’s certainly something we’d actively explore with the board.
“We’re absolutely delighted to step in, albeit mid-season, to support Partick Thistle. We too look forward to strengthening our relations with the club – very much a local club – to the end of the season and hopefully beyond.”
Despite giving the Jags fans peace of mind, it’s not something that gaffer Jackie McNamara was particularly worrying about, he added: “I don’t think it affects the team short-term but hopefully we can strike up a partnership for next season but just now it’s important that the other side with the finances of the club are kept certain.”
