Friday 21 September was the official launch party of niche law practice ehl Commercial LLP at stylish Leicester city venue Manhattan 34 on Rutland Street.

Also a selective networking event, special guest was Rugby World Cup-winning and England/Leicester Tigers legend, Neil Back.

Stuart Southall, managing partner of EHL Commercial based in the historic Crescent building on Leicester’s King Street, says: “It was a well-attended event and it was great to receive the support that we did from client, contacts and friends alike. The creation of a new and niche law firm is exciting and stressful, but with the calibre of business and personnel we manage to attract, I am sure that we can be a resounding success and I am relishing the forthcoming years. Next year will be additionally exciting, so watch this space.

“I want to thank everyone who attended – it is always great to catch up with clients and associates in a more informal and social environment, but a huge thank you has to go to our Helen Norman who tirelessly organised, invited, chased, prepared and photographed everything to ensure that it was a success. Without her, it just wouldn’t have happened, or run so smoothly and efficiently. As a firm, we are only as good and strong as our team – and she is a rock!”
