RLC featured in The Law Society Gazette for communicating its ethos and core values in an article about creative business development during Covid.
RLC is the only Chambers to have been featured in the Law Gazette looking at how it communicating its ethos and core values whilst maintaining relationships and engaging with clients during lockdown.
An array of firms from Hogan Lovells, Barton Legal, Kingsley Napley and International firm Skadden, Arps, Meaghan & Flom have promoted a wide range of events and activities that took place during lockdown from wine and cheese tastings, virtual art gallery tours, book clubs and online pilates. RLC focussed on the creative arts sector and held a fundraiser webinar to support the theatre industry and artists that had suffered during the pandemic.
Features Editor Eduardo Reyes comments that attendees would have been pleased to know they were supporting artists. He writes:
"The pandemic has hardly been a time to ease up on charitable work, and some have combined this with activities aimed at staying in touch with clients – doing some good while keeping their community of contacts engaged."
Red Lion Chambers teamed up with Clean Break Theatre to launch a fundraiser webinar with live performances from upcoming play ‘The Favour’, which focuses on a character’s struggles to find her identity on the other side of prison.
The chambers had a pre-existing relationship with Clean Break, and co-head of chambers Gillian Jones QC is a member of its development board. As well as fundraising, the relationship, and this event, aimed to promote awareness of the issues the charity deals with.
"We want to have a broad discussion highlighting the journeys of women who find themselves in the criminal justice system," Jones explains, "and the effects this has on their lives and those around them. Only through open discussion are these stories heard and change achieved."
