Banner Elected to Lead the Law Management Section Committee of the Law Society
Robert Banner, Executive Director of law firm Banner Jones, has been elected as Chairman of the Law Society’s Law Management Section Committee for the fourth year running – making him the longest standing Chairman of the Committee.
The Committee’s function is to provide members with support, advice and expert assistance to enable their firms to progress as efficiently and as profitably as possible in the current legal market place. Its offering is aimed at partners, leaders and practice managers in law firms, and is provided by way of magazines, webinars, e-newsletters, pod casts, conferences and networking opportunities.
Having joined the Section’s Executive Committee in 2010, he took over as Chair from his predecessor, Chris Hart, in 2014. He sits alongside 15 other expert members, including managing partners and nationally known legal consultants – including Vice Chair, Anne Harrison, who is Chairwoman of top 150 law firm Stephensons Solicitors LLP.
In addition to his work with the Law Society, Robert has been an active member of the management team at law firm Banner Jones for more than 25-years, during which time the firm has grown from three partners to 17 directors; and from one office to six offices throughout South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
“It is a privilege to have been appointed as Chair of the Law Management Section Committee for the fourth year running, and I very much look forward to sitting alongside my fellow committee members to ensure that our members continue to have access to the very best support and advice to help further their professional development.”
