The results of outsourcing to a professional event planner, who can apply strong organisational skills and experience, speaks for itself.

On 1 May 2012, Wendy Marston Events organised a successful champagne reception for Private Client Practitioner’s Top 25 Law Firms, doubling the number of attendees in their first year.

As part of Private Client Practitioner’s Top 25 series, the Top 25 Law Firms aims to identify, recognise, introduce and promote the Top 25 Private Client Law Firms, in the UK and UK offshore. The champagne reception, held at Bonhams in London, included guests from the leading UK and UK offshore law firms, such as Withers, Charles Russell and Speechly Bircham. These firms had been identified by Private Client Practitioner as being the leading law firms offering private client advice.

Wendy Marston Events is a specialist event planner, focusing on the organisation of awards programmes and their associated receptions, dinners and meetings, from small roundtable breakfast meetings to gala award dinners. Wendy Marston, founder and director, has been managing the PAM Awards for PAM Insight, the company behind Private Client Practitioner, for over 10 years, and in 2012 has taken over the organisation of their remaining suite of awards and events.

“I’m so pleased that we have had such a dramatic effect on the impact the event has within the private client financial industry. The results of outsourcing to a professional event planner, who can apply strong organisational skills and experience, speaks for itself,“ says Wendy Marston, founder and director.

Bonhams provided an impressive backdrop, featuring the paintings from their Old Masters sale, which took place on 2nd May. Catering was provided by Bonhams and included filo cups with guacamole and prawns, and fresh British asparagus with cured ham. Sponsor Saunderson House also provided large bowls of branded chocolates. The champagne was Louis Roederer Brut NV. Plaques produced by Awarded2U were handed out to the winners.
