The article reports that Solicitors in Local Government (SLG), the professional body representing the 4,000 local government lawyers in England and Wales, has become embroiled in a spat over the future of its training unit. Protracted negotiations over the future of the unit broke down in 2004 when its manager Peter Godper broke away from SLG to launch his own company to run the unit. The breakdown has caused SLG chair Maria Memoli to threaten legal proceedings in order to secure the unit's future. Memoli has retained law firm Pinsents to deal with the dispute.
