Clyde & Co hosts annual Burns Supper

Clyde & Co welcomed more than 240 clients and colleagues to its annual Burns Supper last night to commemorate the national poet of Scotland.

The event, which was once again hosted at London’s Merchant Taylors’ Hall, has become a firm favourite with clients having been held since 2001.

Andrew Constable returned to compère the evening. This was followed by David Leckie who piped in the haggis where it was addressed by Vikki Melville, Clyde & Co’s managing partner for Scotland. After the dinner, Duncan Batchelor delivered the Immortal Memory, followed by a Scots musical medley performed by Alison Tyler.

While the supper featured almost all the customs expected at a Burns Supper, the firm once again sought to challenge gender convention, with Kelly Brotherhood and Ross Cameron respectively stepping up for a toast to the laddies and reply.

Ms Melville said: “Our annual Burns Supper is always a highly anticipated event and this year was no exception, bringing together hundreds of clients and colleagues to celebrate Scotland’s most renowned poet.

“As well as enjoying the opportunity to catch up with those across the legal profession, it was wonderful to see those from our Scottish offices demonstrating their remarkable musical and theatrical talents in performing the Burns Night traditions.”
