Who we are and what we do – Banking Matters September 2017Print publication
Conquering the 3 Peaks for Candlelighters!
Several members of Walker Morris’ Banking Litigation team set off at the crack of dawn on Sunday 2 July, to conquer the Yorkshire 3 Peaks to raise money for the firm’s charity of the year, Candlelighters.
Despite a few aches and pains along the way, everyone made it safely back in under ten hours, raising a fantastic £1,738.10 for this crucial and cherished local charity.
Spectacular trek for a very special cause
In August, Walker Morris’ banking litigator Christina Gill left Leeds behind for Iceland, the land of fire and ice, to take part in an Icelandic Lava Trek in aid of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice. Iceland being home to some of Europe’s most incredible wilderness, the trek involved thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords, spouting geysers and a few live volcanoes… and resulted in Christina raising over £6,000 for Sue Ryder and their Manorlands Hospice. A truly rewarding experience.
On 30 September Walker Morris’ walkers will be donning their boots for charity once more, as we undertake this year’s Walker’s Walk, a 15 mile hike from our offices in Leeds to Saltaire – again this event is in aid of the firm’s charity for this year, Candlelighters. The more the merrier, so if you would like to join or donate, please contact Louise Power for details.
High profile success for Walker Morris and lender client
Walker Morris’ Kate Hicks was pleased to achieve success in the Court of Appeal on behalf of a lender client, in the eagerly awaited case of NRAM v Evans. See our detailed briefing for an explanation of the decision, which has important implications for lenders seeking alteration or rectification of the register of title.
