In brief: The Lawyer

The Lawyer awards will this year have the highest profile sponsor in their five-year history. NatWest is to be the main sponsor of the event to take place at Grosvenor House on 22 June. More than 1,500 people are expected to attend. In addition to the panel of judges announced in The Lawyer three weeks ago are two new ones: the Right Honourable Lady Elizabeth Butler-Sloss and Queen's Bench Division judge the Right Honourable Sir Alan Moses.
