Anchors Away! – Hanne & Co join South London Law Society’s Golden Jubilee Celebration on HMS Belfast

Ahoy! The South London Law Society celebrated its 50th anniversary with a dinner aboard the HMS Belfast last night. Family Law Solicitors, Criminal Law solicitors, Employment Law Solicitors and Notary Publics from Hanne & Co enjoyed the event in the unique and historic venue.

All hands were on deck to ensure that everything was ship-shape for the evening with guests enjoying hearty fare followed by toasts and a speech from the Chief Executive of the Law Society, Des Hudson. After dinner, guests were free to navigate their way around the ship including the sick bay, gun decks and Admiral’s bridge.

Hanne & Co have a long standing involvement with the SLLS and have provided three former presidents. Michael Burdett, former Hanne & Co Partner and Criminal Law Solicitor, served as President in 1985/86. Professor Sara Chandler held the office from 2003 to 2004 and David Taylor (Employment Law Partner and Notary Public) was President in 2004/2005 and again in 2005/2006. David was also the Honorary Secretary from 2006 -2010 and is currently serving as the SLLS’s Council member at the Law Society.

Hanne and Co solicitors have also been instrumental in setting up the Junior Lawyer’s Division of the SLLS this year with Harry Dronfield (Employment Law Solicitor) taking the helm.

Not wishing to go overboard but the event can be said to have been a rip-roaring success and a great way to celebrate the SLLS’s Golden Jubilee!
