In brief: Sporting network gathers momentum

Over 70 lawyers and law firms from around the country have responded to a Grimsby lawyer's plan to set up a Sports Lawyers Network. Now William King (pictured), of Beetenson & Gibbon, is holding the network's first meeting. The 16 December event, hosted by Grimsby Town Football Club, will be followed by the chance to see a Grimsby match. “Quite a few people have said they want us to arrange something and get things going,” said King. He can be contacted on 01472 241728.
