The MCCBA is the lead sponsor for the champagne reception to mark the launch of the new Business & Property Courts in Birmingham. It has joined forces with the national specialist bar associations, COMBAR, the Chancery Bar Association and TECBAR. In addition, it is working closely with fellow sponsor Lexis-Nexis to publish a magazine on 6 July to mark the launch of the new courts in Birmingham.
Additional, very generous support has been given to this event by the High Sheriffs of the West Midlands, John Hudson OBE DL (2017/8) and Keith Bradshaw DL (2016/7) and by the Property Litigation Association.
Ed Pepperall QC, Chairman of the MCCBA, said: “The Association is delighted to be working with all of our fellow sponsors. We are particularly pleased to see the support so willingly given to regional specialist practice by the national specialist bar associations. Thanks also to Lexis-Nexis for deploying its professional publishing capability to support this event and to our other co-sponsors for their support. I look forward to a successful launch event and to the success of these new courts.”
