Jordan Davies Presents Hallam Whitehead with the 4th Virtuoso Legal Award for Intellectual Property
Virtuoso Legal were delighted to attend the Leeds Beckett law graduation event at Leeds Town Hall on Wednesday the 18th of July; to grant the 4th annual “Virtuoso Legal Award for Intellectual Property”.
Trainee Solicitor, and frequent Leeds Beckett graduate Jordan Davies returned to present the award to winner, Hallam Whitehead (pictured with Jordan above).
Jordan Davies said:
It’s really heart-warming to be back at Leeds Beckett where in not so distant past I myself have been the recipient of commendations as a law student. Presenting the 4th annual Virtuoso Legal Award for Intellectual Property to Hallam was a bit of a surreal moment – as it’s strange to be on the other side of award giving!
Myself and the rest of Virtuoso Legal are delighted for Hallam insofar as it’s a really exciting time in an IP solicitor to-be’s career, and we look forward to welcoming him on a work placement in the near future where he will gain valuable practical IP experience.
We’re really happy to help Hallam, who is clearly a talented prospect in making that next step, and wish him all the best in his future career.”
At the event, Leeds Beckett celebrated the opening of it’s law clinic which will provide access to legal support for those unable to instruct solicitors through conventional routes.
Jordan was also delighted to meet Lady Black (pictured below) who was the 2nd female Judge of the Supreme Court to be called in the UK.
Jordan further commented:
One of the most critical areas of improvement required in law concerns access to justice, so it’s great to see that Leeds Beckett are leading the way with their new clinic.
Another big highlight for me was meeting Lady Black, the 2nd woman to be called as a Judge to the UK Supreme Court. Lady Black used to teach at Leeds Beckett and still lives in Yorkshire, so as another Leeds alumni based in the city, meeting her at this early stage in my legal career was truly an inspirational moment.
Overall, the experience of granting this award has left me with incredible confidence behind the pedigree of legal talent in Yorkshire.”
Virtuoso Legal is passionate about developing and supporting the best IP talent and the Virtuoso Legal Award for Intellectual Property is one way that we do so.
Congratulations again to Hallam from all of the team here at Virtuoso Legal.
