Selena Hinds, partner and head of Probate, Wills and Trusts at Raworths, Harrogate’s leading law firm, has been invited to attend a special reception at the House of Commons in honour of the first 100 Legal Executives to become partners in their law firms.
The regulations enabling qualified individuals other than solicitors to become partners in law firms changed in March 2009. Selena was one of the first Legal Executives to become a partner, achieving this on the first day after new regulations came into force. The Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) is honouring the first 100 such partners and the first Legal Executive Judge at a reception at the House of Commons later this month.
Managing partner, Christopher Butterworth says, ‘Fellows of the Institute of Legal Executives are very well qualified lawyers and it is entirely appropriate that their abilities and contribution towards the management of firms can now be recognised at partner level. We are delighted that Selena has been invited to such a prestigious event.’
