Clyde & Co’s Annual Shipping Party, once gain at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the heart of the Square Mile, was attended by over 600 guests, including partners and associates of the well known legal entity, from all over the world! John Faraclas reports:
Just managed to arrive prior the senior partner’s welcome speech. The towering Michael Payton was applauded for his eloquent, humorous but brief speech allowing Clyde & Co faithful to continue their networking in style and substance till late. Who wasn’t there; a good chance to meet friends from the past from all paths of the maritime world, and make new ones too!
With Anny on my side, helping me due to my bad knee, we managed to talk to Michael Payton, congratulating him for his humorous speech, discussed various legal aspects and pleased to hear about his latest sailing holidays in the Greek archipelago from Skiathos to Amorgos and beyond!
With plentiful of champaign and any drink you can think of, as well as with excellent deeps, in the inner and outer surrounding of this magnificent Hall, the long weekend had started; excellent!
