Slater Heelis celebrates 250 years in style with Hotel Gotham event
Leading law firm, Slater Heelis, hosted a stylish anniversary event at Manchester’s Hotel Gotham to celebrate 250 years of business.
Bringing together over 170 guests, comprising team members, associates, partners and suppliers, the firm put on a night to remember at the exclusive 5-star City centre venue, starting with a fire eater welcoming guest on arrival.
The company, known regionally and nationally as one of the leading full-service law firms, provided complimentary drinks throughout the evening and ensured food flowed in the form of fish and chips in a cone, vegetable kebabs, arancini sliders, pizza, canapes and much more.
Commenting on the night, Chris Bishop, Managing Partner at Slater Heelis said: “Wow – firstly, what an incredible achievement for any business to reach such a major milestone of 250 years. We are thrilled to be here and so grateful to generations gone by and our current team of talented professionals that have contributed immeasurably to the Slater Heelis we see today.
“The event was a night to remember and the perfect way to capture the moment and pay thanks to those nearest and dearest to the business. From amazing entertainment to delicious food and of course, the incredible setting itself at Hotel Gotham, it really was enjoyed by all!”
As part of its 250-year celebrations, the firm has announced partnerships with other organisations celebrating landmark anniversaries, including the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) who performed on the night and Connell College, who are celebrating 50 and 10 years retrospectively.
In a bid to make 2023 an anniversary year to remember, the firm is also planning to provide 250 days of charity by the end of December, encouraging each of its 220employees to take one day paid leave to volunteer with a range of local charities and organisations to support the community.
