I was asked the other day how do I have time to manage all the social media platforms I use? The short answer is that I don't have time to do it as much as I would like. Unfortunately work will always take precedence but each day is different depending on my schedule and objectives for that day.
There are of course times during the day when I can get access and whatever my day holds I always wind down during my commute. I always try to have a 'fag break' each morning and…Read More
Mark Manley, Media Law Partner at Brabners Chaffe Street comments:
The King is dead! Long live the … Sun on Sunday? Sunday Sun? Whatever replaces the News of the World (NOTW)?
Not for a moment am I condoning any of the wrongdoings of those responsible at NOTW/News International. Of course not. Seriously infringing the personal and private lives of victims of horrendous criminal offences, the armed services and other…Read More

It is essential that the process is conducted strategically, and that a great deal of work is undertaken at the start, in order to determine what you really need to know and why.
The process does not have to involve a lot of people, but it can help make your collection activities as effective as possible.
To overcome resistance and gain hearts and minds, give all individuals, from partner to administrator, ownership of objectives and actions relevant to their…

Do you dream about the time when you will no longer have to go to the office or chambers to earn a living? When you will no longer have to spend hours looking at cases and briefs?
Having sufficient wealth to ensure you are no longer reliant on anyone else to live the life you wish is a goal for most people but, lottery wins aside, it is not possible to achieve quickly. Undertaking some important actions can bring financial independence sooner than leaving it to…Read More

Criminal solicitor Stephen Scully says "According to recent newspaper reports, the DNA records of up to a million innocent people are to be kept by police, in an apparent breach of a previous promise made by the Government to delete them.
"Records will be retained in anonymous form, but it will still be possible to match them to peoples’ names. Currently, profiles of everyone arrested for a…
Over the last few months we have seen 3 HR related apps released for the iPhone, not to mention a few others from Ralli Solicitors. This is a very interesting development, one that not many people would have thought about. But now, whereas many people have wondered "what would a legal app do", they are wondering about "how many apps would saturate the market".
This growing interest in mobile from law firms is very healthy and well aligned to the natural growth in mobile…Read More

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius. Commander of the Armies of the North. General of the Felix Legions. Loyal servant to the true Emperor, Marcus Aurelius ..... When Ridley Scott directed Russell Crowe in Gladiator in 2000, he reawakened the planet's appetite for the sword and sandal epics. Sadly, the success of that one great film also reawakened studio bosses appetite for making money from such epics, so what we saw in the years following Gladiator was a series of not-so-good…Read More
In our younger days, we have all done things which we ended up regretting.
We have wronged people, we caused them upset. Guilty as charged.
But no one can turn back the wheels of time and usually life goes on and people move on do to better and greater things.
But what if suddenly, almost out of the blue 10, 20, 30 years on, an image from the past decides to make a reappearance in our lives with the sole purpose of destroying everything that we have…

I’m sure that you’ve heard of ‘the elevator pitch’. In fact, it was used as an interview technique in the final of BBC’s The Apprentice last night. Ask someone to sum up their business proposition or what they do for a living in the time that it would take to go up to their floor in a lift. It’s a good idea to have something mentally prepared for impromptu networking opportunities.
I had a variation on the theme the other day when my three-year-old son asked me about my job. Now…Read More

There is an ongoing conversation over at LinkedIn about the value of legal directories. It's an age old debate and one that I've seen surface and resurface for the last 10 years. Is an argument that lasts for 10 years worth having? I don't know but it's one that formed the basis of many conversations that I had with…Read More

1) Inflation Is Eroding Your Long Term Value
If you have lost faith in stock market investing having been burnt over the past decade you may be of the opinion that “cash is king”. This is true, for the short term, but with inflation figures now above 5% any long term value of…Read More

A historic piece of pop art, once belonging to the late John Lennon, has been returned to its owners 24 years after it went missing.
The artwork, referred to as the “Psychedelic Eye” (the Eye), was personally designed by Lennon when he lived at his Kenwood home in Surrey with Cynthia and Julian. During his time at Kenwood Lennon recorded some of his most famous work and it was also at such residence that his relationship with Yoko Ono developed. The Eye consists of over 17,000 small…Read More
