Local Government Legal Awards 2014

Posted by
27 Nov 2014
This weekend see's the first annual LLG Awards Ceremony taking place in London. The ceremony recognises excellence in local government lawyers across 12 categories, and I am proud that Sellick Partnership are sponsoring the employment law award.

The awards process has been an opportunity for lawyers and legal teams to showcase their talents in their respective areas of technical legal specialisms, and a huge amount of work has gone into the preparation and submission of the entries. 

Together with Paul Hodgson, Principal Solicitor at Hampshire County Council, and Suki Binjal, Business Services Group Manager and Transformation Lead at Surrey County Council, I had the pleasure of assessing and judging the employment law award, based on set criteria. This included innovation, community focus, commercial awareness and contribution to revenue.

The applications were all of extremely high quality, and I was overwhelmed with the level of engagement we saw from all entrants and the evident time that had been spent in organising their applications to such a high standard.

It was not an easy decision, but the finalists are Essex County Council, Lancashire County Council and Warwickshire County Council, and the winner, to be announced on Saturday night, is a most worthy choice.

This black tie event is now fully booked, which I think demonstrates the value in not only recognising the hard work delivered by legal professionals within the public sector, but also in attending these occasions to network and celebrate with peers.

I am very much looking forward to attending the awards on Saturday night at The Rosewood Hotel in Holborn, and I am particularly looking forward to catching up with colleagues and associates who I have been involved in doing business with over the last 10 years.
Our host, Clive Anderson, should be a hoot, and I've got my glad rags ready, and I'm raring to go! I'm looking forward to hosting Graham White, Jessica Farmer and Kiran Khanna, I'm sure we will have a fabulous evening, I'll report back on Monday
