Scott Rees and Co partner Chris Walker has been invited by Liverpool Law Society to attend their annual dinner as a top table guest this evening where he will be joined by former Deputy Prime Minister, Michael Heseltine, as well as the senior judges & guests of Liverpool.
Chris Walker (pictured), who oversees the firm’s catastrophic and serious injury department received the invite in line with his work for the Liverpool Branch of CILEx (Chartered Institution of Legal Executives), where he is the Chairperson.
Mr Heseltine is famous for his time as Tory MP, most notable for challenging Margaret Thatcher’s leadership of the conservative party, which although he lost, it is widely believed his standing was enough to force her resignation.
Speaking about being invited to the event Chris said: “It is a real honour to be invited to sit on the top table, especially with someone as well respected as Michael Heseltine. I would like to thank the Law Society for their kind invite.”
It is not the first time that Chris’ work has earned him a prestigious invite. In 2011 he was invited to attend the House of Commons by ILEx (Institute of Legal Executives) in recognition of reaching his partnership with the firm.
He has hardly looked back since then and in his time as CILEx Chair for Liverpool has overseen many events including the first ever Liverpool Legal Walk last year.
Scott Rees and Co Managing Partner, Royston Smith was quick to praise Chris saying: “It is great to see the hard work that Chris puts in getting noticed and rewarded. We are extremely proud of his achievements both as a partner of Scott Rees & Co but also of his work with CILEx where he has made a real impact.”
