Beachcroft Stanleys is one of a number of law firms to win new work after attending Legal Monte Carlo '98 last week. The leading insurance firm was appointed to healthcare provider Bupa's panel after a one to one meeting at the conference.
Beachcrofts senior partner, Lord Hunt of Wirral, said he was pleased with the appointment. "The conference was a marvellous opportunity to find out from in-house lawyers exactly what they are looking for from their external law firms," he said.
The Lawyer event was attended by 240 delegates, and featured guest speakers such as David Lock MP (pictured), the parliamentary private secretary to the Lord Chancellor's department, and Professor John Kay, whose keynote speech questioning the legal profession's obsession with globalisation is analysed on page 17.
Firms also had the opportunity to talk business with in-house lawyers. The Lawyer's publisher, Rachel Lesiter said that Legal Monte Carlo '99 had already been booked for the start of November 1999.
