A pioneering spirit

An article in The Lawyer, 3 February says: "The idea of a solicitor-run chain of property centres was pioneered by the chairman of Conquest Marketing, Richard Berenson last summer".

The idea was in fact pioneered in 1984 by the National Association of Solicitors Property Centres (now Solicitors Property Group). While Berenson's endeavours are appreciated, I do not think it right that they receive credit for our years of solitary pioneering work.
