Hall Brown Family Law is the latest company to sign up to our new venture, aimed at keeping us in business in the face of multiple challenges during the pandemic.

Corporate subscriptions allow between two and 30,000 people to log on to and enjoy a faster loading, ad-lite webpage for a discounted price. They can also download that day's newspaper in a page-turning app.

Hall Brown opened an office in Sheffield in April. It is led by Alison Fernandes who said the firm had taken out a corporate subscription because of The Star’s importance to the local community.

She added: “It’s not only great for keeping in touch with the area’s business community but great for keeping up to date on issues affecting the wider South Yorkshire community.

“Family law is essentially a people business. We need to keep up-to-date with the issues affecting people who, like everyone in the Hall Brown office, is either from Sheffield or lives in the surrounding area.

“All of that is reflected in the pages of The Star.

“Its coverage is perhaps more important than ever in these difficult times because lockdown means that we can’t get out and about as much as we might usually do.

“Just like the work that we do, The Star serves the local area. Being a corporate subscriber is our way of showing support for quality local journalism and we’d urge others to do the same."
