The past week has flown by since our first weekly note was published on our blog! Let’s start with our exciting news – we are delighted to announce that we have retained our Top-tier Band 1 ranking in Chambers & Partners UK 2014, a guide to the best solicitors in the UK! All 3 of our Directors have also been listed individually which is a great achievement. The rankings are based on enquiries of our professional peers and clients.
Client feedback is really important to us and helps us to grow in a positive direction. We received this comment from a grateful client this week: –
“You have a damn fine firm and will, I am sure, continue to be extremely successful. It wasn’t the outcome at Court that meant so much to me, it was the support from you and the team during the journey that made the difference.”
It’s been a positive week all round for the team – this is what we’ve all been up to: –
Linda: Interesting week – I had a one day contested hearing where the best interests of the child prevailed; finalised and agreed a financial consent order; meeting a delightful new international client; advised a new client after the partner did something provocative; finalising some initial letters trying to get the other to consider mediation or collaborative law and preparing for a final hearing next week. Ending the week with a Halloween sleepover for my teenage daughter and her friends.
Robert: A day off celebrating my eldest son’s 17th birthday and my wife becoming a BACP Accredited Counsellor, a day sitting as a Deputy District Judge and getting ready for my arbitration training has kept me occupied. Oh and a lovely lunch with a client.
Lisa: Applying for a Penal Notice to be attached to an Order which the other party has not complied with; several meetings with new clients one of whom is very keen to deal with his matter using the collaborative law model; a referral to Mediation for a separating couple who want to sort out their finances; briefing Counsel for a Children Act hearing next week and attending a seminar on updating case law.
Chris: Busy week this week advising a client on issues relating to contact arrangements, finalising a client’s statement for an upcoming final court hearing and attending the First Friday luncheon and the Young Professionals Group meeting.
Miriam: Assisting Alan’s clients whilst he’s been away on leave and finalising plans for the Crimestoppers Speakeasy Spectacular I’m helping organise on 22 November.
Alan has been off this week but he did find time out of his busy schedule entertaining his 4 children during half term to send this summary of his week:
“I’ve taken a week off to sneakily begin cultivating a moustache for ‘Movember‘. It looks like a small animal and my children call it Billy.“
