LOCOG lawyers in demand for in-house roles

19th September 2012

Terry Miller, who was in charge of the team that oversaw legal matters relating to the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, has revealed that many of the lawyers who served on the panel are being headhunted for high-profile in-house roles by some of the UK’s leading private companies.  

Legal recruitment agencies in London are reportedly being kept busy by firms trying to secure contracts with some of those whose expertise as solicitors ensured the smooth running of the world’s greatest spectacle of sport this summer, much to the relief of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).

Speaking after what has proved to be a hugely successful time for the city of London in every sense, Miller noted that perhaps the greatest achievement of the team she led was that the majority of the general public were not particularly aware of their presence whilst the Games were taking place.
