LLG were delighted to sponsor the 'Legal Services' category in the Municipal Journal Awards last week at the Hilton Park Lane, London. Many congratulations to the winners, Coventry City Council who evidenced resilience and adaptability in the provision of legal services & flexibility for staff whilst delivering savings. Judges commented that Coventry's economic growth projects; such as the Whitley South Infrastructure Project together with it's pro-bono work evidenced a substantial and long-term benefit for the local community.

Praise must also go to Dorset County Council & Tri-Borough's; Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea for being awarded a very well deserved Highly Commended.

The City of Wolverhampton Council, no stranger to success at the LLG Awards, was named Local Authority of the Year and described as an 'outstanding example of modern local government where the resident is at the heart of sound commercial decision-making'.

There were 14 categories overseen by host Joanna Lumley, who was an absolute delight and who greeted personally each and every person who took to the stage.

Aside from celebrating the great work being carried out across local authorities, LLG spent the evening raising it's profile and forming contacts with key people for future collaboration projects and national influence.

To celebrate your own team's achievement, don't forgot to look out for the launch of the LLG Awards 2017 being held in Birmingham this year and you too could be enjoying a glitzy evening with a trophy to take back to the office!
