Members of the in-house legal team from BCL legal attended the annual Commerce and Industry North East dinner in Leeds last month.
Guests of BCL Legal included prominent legal counsel from the Yorkshire region including the Head of Legal’s from Grontmij, Zenith Provecta, Bupa Care Services, Mamas & Papas, Manheim Auctions, WYG International and CallCredit.
The night began with a champagne reception and an address from the Carol Williams from the C&I Group (Chair of North East Regional Committee). After dinner, we were thoroughly entertained by Clive Coleman – the BBC’s Legal Correspondent, a role he arrived at via a career as a barrister, Principal Lecturer in Law, and then one of the country’s leading comedy writers.
The exceptional generosity of the guests also raised valuable funds towards equipment for the Leeds General Infirmary Neonatal Unit.
Mark Levine, Director of in-house, described the event as ‘another great night out celebrating the achievements of the C&I Group and the in-house legal community in general. After all the hard work through the year this social gathering is a good way to catch up with fellow in-house lawyers and compare notes. We always enjoy the night and are grateful to Carole Williams and Sapna Bedi (Of the NE C&I Group) for allowing us to play such an important part in this high profile event.”
