Manchester Legal Awards, 1 March 2018

Rachel Darlington, Jamie Chinnock and Lauren Roberts from G2 Legal attended the annual Manchester Legal Awards, which took place on Thursday 1st March 2018 at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.

 

This was the ninth year of these awards which are the highlight of the legal social calendar, celebrating legal talent across the North West. The awards are organised by the Manchester Law Society and in particular Fran Eccles-Bech and her team who work incredibly hard to produce such an amazing night.

 

Following a champagne reception, we sat down to enjoy a 3 course dinner whilst the awards took place.

 

It certainly was a fun night and it was great to see our clients honoured in these awards (see below for full list of winners on the night).

 

G2 Legal see it as a great privilege to be able to support our clients in the legal market in the North West and to be part of this fantastic night.

 

We are already looking forward to 2019 and the tenth awards! #MLA2018.
