L&G Law Group Get Involved in Rugby

This St Patrick’s Day weekend (13/14 March) sees L&G Law Group sponsoring an invitational rugby team in the annual Savannah Shamrocks RFC St Patrick’s Day Tournament in Savanah, Georgia. The tournament is a prestigious one, having first been run in 1979 and, continuing to grow annually, it now attracts some of the best teams from within the USA and further afield.

The team, organised by the Chairman of L&G Law Group ‘s EU Committee, Cary Depel, has played in the tournament for several years now, winning it for the last 3. Originally from Indiana, Cary has lived in the UK for many years and was a late convert to rugby. He decided a few years ago to organise an invitational side, “The Willing”, to play in the Savannah tournament and various others around the world. Players who have played (and will be playing) for the Willing come from all four corners of the globe including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, England, Wales, Ireland and France. With Cary still suiting up, you can also add the USA to that list. In addition, James Kindon, a UK qualified lawyer who is currently working in our Chicago office will also be playing.

L&G Law Group think this is a great weekend with a difference – an oportunity to meet people from all over the world, mingle in a relaxed environment and enjoy the weekend making new friends. Any clients or contacts of the firms who would be interested in meeting up with Cary, James and the team should contact either Gerald Haberkorn or James Kindon in our Chicago office.

This year will see an extension of L&G Law Group ‘s sponsorship to allow a second “over 35” team to be entered into the veterans tournament. This will allow some of our older contacts and clients who have decided to enjoy the weekend with us to decide whether they also want to have a run around and find out (in a slightly more relaxed environment than the main tournament) what rugby players the world over would say they have been missing.

We look forward to seeing you there.
