I attended a fabulous banquet organised by The Worshipful Company of Solicitors of the City of London at Mansion House last night.
Guests included the Lord Mayor, Lord Chief Justice, Master of the Rolls, President of the Law Society and Chair of the Bar Council.
The City of London Solicitors’ Company, of which I’m proud to me a member, is the Livery Company for solicitors who practise or have practised in the City of London. It was established in 1908, became a Livery Company in 1944and was granted a Royal Charter in 1958. Its aims are to promote the profession, to foster goodwill and fellowship amongst City solicitors and to share in the wider traditions of the City. Its sister organisation is the City of London Law Society, whose membership comprises over 15,000 solicitors practising in the City of London, many of them in large firms which have very substantial international representation.
Around 300 guests attended the event and it was great to meet up with some old friends.
