Yorkshire Legal Awards 2014

October 9, 2014

So, it is that time of year again when the region’s legal community comes together to celebrate its successes and recognise star performances from firms of all sizes and individuals from all legal disciplines.  The event, always meticulously prepared by Barker Brooks, is again hosted at the New Dock Hall on Thursday 16 October and again promises to be another lavish affair, with plenty of alcohol flowing freely from the reception.
