President's Cup Final
Monday 10th December 2018

This year the President's Cup final was kindly hosted by Gateley PLC, with two finalists in attendance, Billy Shaw from Rothera Sharp and Asim Hussain from Actons Solicitors.

The President's Cup is a negotiation competition and this year the two sides had to negotiate their agenda and meeting around the subject matter of a famous film star, Phenomenon Studios and super hero films.  The negotiation was very engaging, persuasive and certainly had the X Factor.

The two finalists were supported by colleagues from Rothera Sharp and Actons, with the support and  the judging panel in attendance it was a full room!  The judging panel involved Past President Austin Moore, from Austin Moore & Partners LLP, the Chair of the  Education & Training Committee, Helen Webster along with committee member Steve Kirby.  We were also joined by Reema Shama, NJLD Academic Secretary and Nottinghamshire Law Society's current President Laura Pinkney.

After the 45 minute discussion and deliberation of the judges of what we all thought was a closely run contest, the winner was announced - Billy Shaw from Rothera Sharp.

The competition is an annual event and is great to get involved with - join in next year for the President's Cup, competition details will be released in October.

In the meantime, the next competition will be the Hammond Cup, which will be scheduled for March 2019. Watch out for more details to be released in January.
