Charles Russell Sponsors The Great British Week In Bahrain 2014

This article was written prior to the formation of Charles Russell Speechlys, through the merger between Charles Russell and Speechly Bircham.

Charles Russell were proud to support the GREAT British Week in Bahrain which took place between 15-23rd January. Timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the bilateral agreement between UK and Bahrain, the GREAT British Week was designed to emphasise the friendship and strong bilateral relationship between the United Kingdom and Bahrain, while exhibiting Britain’s tradition of world-class engineering and technology skills.

Events throughout the week showcased the long-standing business links between the two countries featuring conferences and events within the British and Bahraini communities.

The week of events was organised by the British Embassy and the Bahrain British Business Forum under the patronage of his Majesty King Hamad Al Khalifa. The week was designed to celebrate all that is best about Britain, while promoting British excellence and expertise in a variety of industry sectors.

The events also provided an opportunity for our Bahrain team to meet with clients and contacts of the firm in an informal and entertaining setting.

Charles Russell were the sole legal sponsor and our involvement further reinforces our commitment to Bahrain and our rich British heritage.
