A surprise for politics. A rousing reception sponsored by Simpson Millar
September 25 2010 will certainly be a date remembered in political circles for years to come. As, of course, it was the day that Ed Miliband pipped his older brother David to the post of Labour leader. Simpson Millar LLP was there to witness the extraordinary events.
Like the Labour party, our Firm has strong connections with the trade unions and we were delighted to sponsor the London Labour Party Reception on Saturday evening. Following his rousing victory speech as the surprise result was announced – it’s no secret that David Miliband was tipped to take the vote – Ed’s next speech was made to the party faithful at the Simpson Millar-sponsored event.
The Labour party was formed to give a voice and standing to ordinary working people. As we are proud to represent unions and their workers and give a voice to their legal needs, so we were honoured to sponsor the Reception for the London Labour Party and its new UK party leader Ed Miliband.
Simpson Millar LLP will be present throughout the Conference, offering sound legal advice on a full range of issues via our exhibition stand number 6.
Our presence just goes to show that, not only are we at the cutting-edge of law, we are also right at the heart of events that will shape Britain for years to come.
