A busy season for the legal public sector!

The past few months have certainly been an exciting month for Lawyers in Local Government, with both the annual LGG conference and the Legal Awards taking place. As well as sponsoring and exhibiting at the LGG Conference, we also sponsored the award for Governance lawyer/Team of the year.

This year the annual Lawyers in Local Government conference was held at the Hilton hotel in Blackpool- Las Vegas of the North! The conference was perfectly timed for delegates to enjoy a visit to the Winter Gardens with a tour from Blackpool Heritage Tour Guides. As always with the English seaside, the weather was unforgiving but all who attended were suitably distracted from the cold with an evening tram ride to see the famous Blackpool Illuminations.
Sellick Partnership attend the LGG Governance Conference every year as exhibiters and sponsors so it was really good to see some familiar and new faces alike. Our stand was ‘seaside’ themed, perfectly completed with a view of the sea from our window and a nostalgia inducing selection of ‘pick n mix’ sweets. The only thing missing was a donkey and some candyfloss.

We also introduced former rugby captain and motivational speaker Bill Beaumont, a local figure who is regarded as a great leader and captain. His triumphs in 1980 will never be forgotten when he led England to their first Grand Slam since 1957 and was captain of the British Lions. Bill’s International career started in 1975 against Ireland and in all he played 34 times for England, a significant number at the time. It is safe to say that his talk was well received by rugby enthusiasts, and we were very grateful for him standing in at the last minute.

Later on in the month the Local Government Legal Awards took place at The Rosewood Hotel in London, hosted by Clive Anderson. The night was the opportunity to really celebrate the success of both individuals and teams within local government. Sellick Partnership sponsored the Governance Lawyer/Team of the year, and the winners were the corporate law team at Brighton and Hove City Council. Congratulations!
Not only this, we have recently held two CPD events in London which were both packed to the brim, so it has certainly been a busy time for the team here!
