We have an amazing prize for our winner. A 2 night stay (including dinner on one evening for 2 people) at the luxury boutique hotel Vivenda Miranda in the Algarve Portugal. It is my favorite hotel in the Algarve!

Vivenda Miranda

The Telegraph on 23 December 2016 recommended Vivenda Miranda in an article entitled “The top 5 beach holidays in Portugal for 2017”.

The sweeping sands of Porto de Mos are overlooked by dramatic multicoloured cliffs, which, further along the coast, harbour hidden caverns and pretty archways. This is why the Algave is such a coveted holiday destination.

Ochre-coloured Vivenda Miranda, once a private home, is perched atop the cliffs and is a spectacular spot to while away lazy days. Its 26 rooms offer wonderful sea views, while its verdant garden, studded as it is with palm trees, juts out to cliff edge and overlooks the golden sands below.

It’s all about pandering to pleasure here; Neal’s Yard has just opened its first overseas spa at the hotel, while the kitchen serves delicious dishes that make good use of local produce. The path down to the beach, which wends past the swimming pool, is the gateway to some great walks.

I look forward to seeing you photo and fingers crossed you could end up wining our top prize and end up enjoying an amazing break in the Algrave 🙂


Lawyers’ BD CLUB: News

2nd Annual General Counsel Summit | London


As many of you know, we held our 2nd Annual General Counsel Summit in London on 23 May 2018.

Our GC guest speakers gave us wonderfully inspiring Talks about their personal career journeys.

“The whole event was such a credit to you Colin, so professionally executed and everyone there was cooing about how your events are the best ones they go to. I don’t think you realize how unique and how valued your events are in comparison to the usual run of the mill seminars and talks by law firms and industry bodies.”

[Comment received from one of our General Counsel guest speakers on 24 May 2018]
