Bold Legal Group (BLG), the membership organisation for the conveyancing community has announced that it will launch its inaugural summer conference on Tuesday 28th June, at Regent’s Conferences & Events, London. The event has been launched with a view to bringing the conveyancing community together to foster collaboration and share knowledge and ideas from sector leaders.
Bold Legal Group’s CEO and Founder, Rob Hailstone who is leading the conference is an experienced ex-residential property conveyancer. BLG is an organisation for the conveyancing community with over 700 member companies throughout England and Wales, and the event has already secured headline sponsorship for the event from legal software provider LEAP.
Rob formed BLG in 2010 and has now grown the membership to approximately 800 member firms throughout England and Wales.
He comments: “The role of a conveyancer and the working environment in which they operate is rapidly evolving. The skills required for modern conveyancing are massively different to that of even ten years ago – and the last two years have seen the biggest changes with an unprecedented demand for conveyancing in the most challenging of markets. There has never been a greater need, nor a better time for conveyancers to come together, share ideas and better understand the future challenges of the industry.
“We have a strong membership and following increasing demand for such a collaboration, we are now excited to be launching our conference in London this summer. The idea is to bring the industry together, improve efficiencies and understand best practice.”
To be held on 28th June 2022, the BLG Summer Conference & Soirée will offer UK conveyancing professionals with a full day of keynote talks, panel discussions and breakout sessions within the main conference building. Networking opportunities will be available throughout the day with coffee breaks, BBQ lunch, and evening drinks taking place outside in the elegant marquee and York Lawns.
The headline sponsor for the event is LEAP, the cloud based legal practice productivity solution, allowing law firms and their teams to work from anywhere at any time.
New LEAP CEO, Gareth Walker comments: “This conference is an event that the industry has been calling on for some time and LEAP is thrilled and honoured to partner with Rob and Bold Legal Group to help see its delivery.
“The BLG Summer Conference will no doubt be an informative, educational, and fun day and we look forward to joining BLG members and the wider conveyancing community to celebrate their efforts during what has been a challenging time for the industry. We are extremely proud to support this event to recognise the important role that conveyancers play in the homebuying process as well as being part of the future road map for the industry.”
BLG CEO, Rob Hailstone added: “We have been overwhelmed by the hugely positive early response that we have received from the BLG members to the launch of our Summer Conference. With LEAP on board as headline sponsor, along with the enthusiastic support of our members, we are excitedly looking forward to delivering the first of what we hope will be many annual summer conferences for the conveyancing community.”
Early Bird delegate tickets will be released for sale to BLG members first in early March, with tickets going on general sale to non-BLG members afterwards in late in March.
