The Midlands Asian Lawyers Association is delighted to confirm that four new committee members have been appointed.
Our 13-strong team now includes barristers Dewinder Birk from No 5 Chambers and Priya Bakshi from New Walk Chambers, as well as solicitors Rita Kotecha from Cartwright King and Krishna Kotecha from Moosa-Duke.
Nirmal Shant QC, chair of our Association, has said: “We are delighted to have four very talented women join our team and we also welcome the increase in female representation on our committee”.
Our association, which operates throughout the Midlands, raised more than £6,000 at our flagship annual dinner in 2013. The money was distributed to Rainbows Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support, and Restorative Justice Initiative Midlands.
We hope to raise even more money for charity at this year’s event on 17 October with tickets set to go on sale later this summer.
We can confirm that our annual dinner will take place at Athena in Leicester, and this year’s guest speaker is Nazir Afzal OBE, Chief Crown Prosecutor for the CPS in the North West region.
