Simmons & Simmons trainee solicitor Ayesha Qureshi has received an MBE for her work to secure the London 2012 Olympic bid.
The 27-year-old trainee was included in the New Year Honours List for her work as a community relations officer for the 2012 bid team. Simmons agreed to delay Quereshi's start date by a year so that she could see the bid through.
Her role included coordinating community consultation exercises to ensure outline planning permission for the Olympic Park, organising a London-wide engagement forum and establishing partnerships with London borough councils.
Qureshi was also responsible for the 'top secret' mission of taking a young delegation to Singapore as part of the marketing campaign.
