Steve Arundale, Head of Professionals at NatWest, presents cheque to Nicola Hill, Community Fundraising Manager – CLIC Sargent.

Legal professionals from across the UK have helped raise nearly £1,500 for children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent as part of NatWest’s annual Legal Conference series.

The four free events, held in Milton Keynes, Glasgow, London and Manchester, were attended by over 450 delegates and looked at key business issues impacting legal firms.

Steve Arundale, Head of Professional Sectors for NatWest Commercial Banking asked delegates for donations in return for the 3.5hours of free CPD value earned at the event.

Steve said: “Delegates were requested to make a donation only if they thought the event was of good quality and had delivered personal benefit. As a result we have raised £1465.00 for a very worthwhile cause. Two years ago my 12 year old son lost a good friend to cancer and it was great to help a charity that supports children who are fighting this cruel decease.

“This is the fourth year that we’ve been running our legal conferences with Huhwaites and it was great to be raising money for charity as well as continuing our support of the legal sector.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
