Whilst driving into work, the newsreader on the radio jubilantly announces that the economy is showing positive signs of recovery. Administrations are down! Liquidations are down! House sales are up! I sigh heavily to my fellow commuters, as this time of renewed optimism and growth is the time I’m...

I was attempting to come up with a topic for my next blog which hasn’t yet been covered by the other trainees. My first thought was 'tips on impressing at law fairs' (having attended the University of Birmingham law fair last week) but, as this was the topic of Kieran’s last blog and we are now...

“And that was work?”  was the response from my friend when I told him about my afternoon at the Taste of the West Awards Ceremony. Well, no, it wasn’t ‘work’ but it is a perk of being part of the Food & Drink sector team at Michelmores. As friends of Taste of the West, we were keen to support...

We will return to more regular blogs as soon as the summer madness dies down. In the meantime though, I thought I’d let you know what I have...

A seat in the Employment department of any law firm is one that is notoriously fought over by many a trainee solicitor. I would say it’s very easy to see why. I have to admit that, for me, employment law was a love even before I joined the Michelmores’ Employment team as a trainee in September 2012...

I am firmly of the opinion that channelling a bit of Ally-style spirit is no bad thing. However, it is true to say that the majority of people are unlikely to agree with me. Because singing still seems to carry with it a certain taboo and “uncool” tag; something that no self respecting person...
