Steven Booth appointed onto high profile board
17th June 2009
The appointment means IBB Solicitors Buckinghamshire, which has been an active member of WLB for three years, will have a central voice on an influential strategy and lobby group which represents West London’s key interests at London and national government levels.
Steven will join an elite Board, of senior representatives of world-leading corporate names such as BAA, GSK, HSBC, British Airways, the BBC, Brunel University, Wembley Stadium and Diageo.
WLB represents some 600 West London members and engages with about 3,000 businesses a year through its diverse activities and events programme. Its prime responsibility is to promote the business of its members, as well as the business environment of West London and entrepreneurship in general. It aims to position West London as the UK’s leading gateway for inward investment.
The organisation works closely with the six boroughs of West London, through the West London Partnership, which provides economic and community strategic leadership for the area.
IBB Solicitors is West London’s leading law firm, a full service firm law firm providing Commercial, Property, Private Client and Community Legal services. The firm delivers a quality of service equal to its City peers, with a particular understanding of and focus on the organisations operating through the West London business environment. IBB is quoted as a “regional heavyweight” in The Legal 500 directory.
Pleased with his appointment on the WLB Board, Steven comments “Being part of the West London business community is key to IBB’s success and this appointment is significant for us. As West London’s leading law firm, IBB is a strong supporter of WLB, and has something valuable to bring to the table. West London is a thriving economy in its own right and along with other corporates in the area, we want to make sure it has a clear direction and gets sufficient support from the government.”
WLB’s Chief Executive, Frank Wingate, said that IBB Solicitors was an energetic member of WLB and firmly committed to West London. “As an innovative and dynamic industry leader, IBB is a very welcome addition to our Board and will strengthen WLB’s credibility further,” he said.
