The ILA's Annual Dinner, held under the dinosaur in the impressive Great Hall of the Natural History Museum in London, was a memorable evening. Members and guests from solicitors' firms, barristers' chambers and other leading UK and overseas organisations attended the prestigious black tie event.
ILA members enjoyed the highly informative pre-dinner lecture delivered by The Honourable Mr Justice Snowden to a packed audience in the modern Attenborough Lecture Studio. The Honourable Mr Justice Snowden was appointed as a High Court Judge to sit in the Chancery Division earlier this year and in his lecture, "Trading Places" he shared some of his first impressions of judging insolvency cases so soon after arguing them.
Following dinner, Dan Hamilton gave his Presidential address and took the opportunity to thank members of the ILA Technical Committee and the Council who give so much time, commitment and energy to the Association. After dinner, Dan introduced Lord (Daniel) Finkelstein O.B.E., a columnist and Associate Editor of The Times and an advisor to the Conservative Party who entertained members with his rules of politics.
Dan thanked Duff & Phelps for their valued support in sponsoring the event and asked the Association to join him in thanking the team from Weil Gotshal & Manges, led by Adam Plainer and Ann Burditt, for their superb organisation of another fantastic evening.
