Managing partner of Leeds law firm launches new podcast series

Chris Allen

Leeds-based law firm Blacks Solicitors LLP has launched a new podcast series which will feature a diverse range of leading Yorkshire personalities.

Hosted by Chris Allen, who won the Managing Partner of the Year Award at the 2018 Yorkshire Legal Awards, each episode of “One to One” features an in-depth interview; with several podcasts already available to download on iTunes and Spotify.

Interviewees already featured include: former Premier League footballer Brian Deane, who spoke to Chris about his humble beginnings starting out at Doncaster Rovers and how his career (which spans three decades) has taken him all over the world; Leeds historian Robert Dyson; sports performance coach Duncan McCarthy; and award-winning science fiction author Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Recorded in an informal and explorative way, Chris aims to unearth anecdotes from the interviewees’ experiences of living and working in Yorkshire.

Chris said: “We’ve always been immensely proud of our Yorkshire heritage at Blacks, and so I wanted to delve a little deeper with some of the interesting folk that have contributed to a slice of history in our great county.

“The response we’ve had so far has been overwhelmingly positive, and I look forward to chatting to more inspiring people in our upcoming episodes.”

Anyone interested in featuring in a future episode of ‘One to One’ is encouraged to contact Chris Allen on or
