Heading to The Ivy: Legal Business and RPC team up for GC Power List Summer Reception

We’ve made it no secret that a major aim for Legal Business and its Legalease stable-mates is to better engage with the general counsel community. As such we’re taking another step in that direction with the launch of an exclusive debate and networking event in June building on the success of our acclaimed Power List Report.

The GC Power List Summer Reception will be held on the evening of 11 June, with RPC as lead sponsor. The event will comprise a relaxed debate chaired by veteran City columnist Anthony Hilton followed by an evening of food and drink at the renowned private members’ club at The Ivy. The debate will include senior lawyers sharing their experiences from companies including Land Securities, ITV, Royal Bank of Scotland, Shire and Vodafone.

The discussion will aim to explore themes from the 2014 report, which focused on up-and-coming lawyers working at major companies’ legal teams in the UK and Europe.

Invitations are being extended to our Rising Stars for 2014, who were identified following weeks of research and drawing on hundreds of nominations. We are also inviting the GCs highlighted in our 2013 report and other selected in-house counsel.

The event will be attended by more than 50 in-house counsel from major companies. The idea is to produce a top-class networking debate, a little food for thought and plenty of actual food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere. And I promise to keep the speechifying to a minimum.
