Derek Nelson elected as Liveryman at WCA Livery Ceremony

4th November 2019


Having received the Freedom of the City of London earlier this year, on 24 October 2019, Derek Nelson was proud to be elected as a Liveryman. Derek took Livery with the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators and was ‘enclothed’ at a court ceremony held at the historic Fishmongers Hall followed by the installation of Margaret Bickford-Smith QC as Master.

The WCA’s charitable trust supports a variety of causes, with an emphasis on education and Derek is honoured to be associated with those aims.
