Our Social Responsibility
At Recovery First, we believe that all businesses have a responsibility to improve the wider community. We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to participate in the sports they love, regardless of their background. Physical activity and participation in sports provides a multitude of physical and mental health benefits for young people; which is why Recovery First decided to invest in youth athletes as role models for all, as well as facilities for children and adults local to our head office to give the cycling discipline of trials a go.
Youth Athlete Sponsorships – British Cycling
Recovery First have been involved in youth athlete programmes over the past number of years.
We have been supporting British Cycling Youth Athletes in the niche discipline of trials.
We love supporting British riders, and to date, we have supported coaching and facilities for kids competing at international level. In 2020, we supported the GB Youth Team by providing funding for coaching in Spain in preparation for the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) World Youth Games. Regrettably, the World Youth Games were cancelled as a result of Covid and we therefore hope to do something similar in 2021.
We also provide training that focuses on core bike handling skills and confidence on a bike for young cyclists at our Head Office in Scotland. Given the increase in participation over the lockdown period, we hope to extend this to adults.
Coaching in Spain
As part of our youth sponsorship programme, we provided funding for young cyclists to travel to Spain for coaching.
Nine youths with three British Coaches travelled to Spain for a 4 Day Training Camp. The photo also features Head Coach, Eloi Palau (former UCI Junior World Champion.
We have plans in place to support a local cycling club, and as part of that, we would love to build a Pump Track for all riders in the coming years.
Brain Injury Group
We are also supporters of Brain Injury Group and the work they do to assist those who have suffered life changing brain injuries to find the specialist legal and welfare benefits support needed to help rebuild their lives. We regularly play at and sponsor their annual charity golf day, raising much needed funds for charities who support children and adults with brain injuries, as well as participating in their Road Safety Week campaign, working with local schools to raise awareness of road safety.

“With our Claimant Personal Injury partner retiring in 2014 we decided the time was right to step back from Claimant Personal Injury work. We reviewed the market options, were disappointed at the discounts being applied by potential buyers of the WIP and were subsequently referred to the methodology introduced by Recovery First offering the full realisation of WIP overtime. We are now pleased that we went with Recovery First, despite the concept being relatively new at the time, as it has effectively delivered what it said on the tin. Over the project period we have seen a steady flow of receipts being accounted for to us as per service level agreements, allowing us to recover the full value we had built up in the files.”
– Mike Clary, Partner
“Having taken a strategic decision mid-2014 to be completely out of the Claimant Personal Injury sector by the end of March 2015 we were Recovery Firsts’ first client to step back on a phased basis. PI-Solutions were happy to customise their offering specifically for us and I am happy to say it has worked a treat. We were able to focus our own resource on matters where we had a possibility of concluding within our own timetable and utilised Recovery First’s panel firms to continue to work on other matters. Not only have their services allowed us to retain the value we had built in the files, the nature of the services ensured we were able to offer our clients the option of moving to firms with the skill sets required to best service our clients’ specific needs. For firms considering a departure from Claimant Personal Injury work we would have no hesitation recommending Recovery First.”
– Malcolm Lawrence, Partner
“Having worked successfully with Recovery First for a number of years, we would have no hesitation in recommending their services when it comes to realising value from a book of claimant personal injury work. For one particular FRP Advisory project the realisations are approaching 100% of what was thought to exist at the outset, in a situation where we would have struggled to achieve 20% by way of a discounted sale. On that particular project a number of cases are still running and there is every possibility the full WIP value will be recovered.”
– David Thornhill, Partner”
” We had an extremely positive experience working with Recovery First after making the strategic decision to move away from an area of law and retune our business model. The process was very straightforward, and we were really pleased with the overall outcome. We would highly recommend the Recovery First model as a practical solution to any law firm wishing to exit a specific sector.”
