Something for the Week End – Friday 17th January

You are Here:

It’s been another extremely busy week at FLP Towers with a variety of new enquiries coming in to keep everyone on their toes. I’ve been busy opening new matters, preparing documents for Court and ending the week by meeting with a relieved client to let her know her matter was now complete – a very grateful testimonial was received shortly afterwards thanking all the team for their support.

Here’s the team’s take on their week: –


I have been very busy with a court hearing and back to back collaborative law sessions this week: all of which required careful preparation. The issues for the families involved will shape their children’s futures so there is a heavy responsibility to get things right. With more in the pipeline for next week, I won’t have time to put my feet up.


Another interesting week. Monday spent drafting and dealing with emails, Tuesday preparing for court and dealing with some urgent issues, Wednesday at court and speaking to a new client, Thursday meeting a client and a bit more drafting and Friday drafting and meeting with a client. Friday night a much looked forward to Thai meal.


It’s a week before a trial and even without the responsibility of the bundle to prepare it is time consuming. Add the that the usual mix of collaborative meetings, new enquiries and sleepers coming to life and I’m left wondering where another week of my life has gone. I treated myself to an early finish yesterday so I could actually see my 10 year old awake for the first time since Tuesday evening!


This week I have been busy preparing Instructions to Counsel, speaking with new clients and watching as our mascot squirrel ‘Stealth’ becomes rounder and rounder from all the nuts that Miriam and Lisa keep putting out for him.


Lots of new enquiries this week, most of which have been about Mediation and Collaborative Law which is very encouraging. The rest of my week has been spent preparing for two collaborative cases which are starting next week; preparing a financial schedule for exchange; looking at possible financial settlement proposals for a client and dealing with divorce proceedings for a couple who somehow appear to have been married twice!

Until next week!
