The Tees Valley JLD is now launched
Florit Brooke was pleased to offer early sponsorship support to the newly founded Tees Valley JLD recently.
As joint sponsor, and leading legal recruitment supplier to firms in the Tees Valley region, we enjoyed attending the recent JLD launch event held at the end of September at the Lotus Lounge in Yarm, which highlighted the health of the regions legal community with a fantastic attendance of over 70 lawyers.
For a group which hasn’t been active for a number of years the attendance was, in no small measure, down to the focus and enthusiasm of a hard core of members headed by the current President of Tees Valley Law Society, TBI Law litigation solicitor Helen Lyne.
Taking part were lawyers from the full spectrum of the area’s law firms including Endeavour Partnership, TBI Law, Irwin Mitchell, Silk Family Law, Merrits and Freers, as well as local authority and industry lawyers. That support was so diverse is surely a reflection of the regions legal service base and hopefully can be a strength as the group looks to establish itself.
With live music, welcome drinks followed by delicious pan-asian food provided by the Lotus Lounge were enjoyed, including a champagne prize draw and words of thanks from Helen Lyne, all captured by a local photographer.
This entertaining evening was a huge success which bodes very well for future events which are already being planned, and Florit Brooke look forward to further involvement with the group in the coming year.
