Wragge & Co may well win top billing among law firm contemporaries as the best firm to work at in the annual survey by The Sunday Times, but it still has a long way to go to beat that friendly bunch at Wilsons. The Salisbury-based firm has been getting very excited over its end-of-year figures. It might be yet another example of a press release that shouts about record results but fails to say what those results actually are, but that is by the by. Anyway, the firm's managing partner Andrew Wiltshire became so excited that he decided to give everyone who works at the firm the day off on their next birthday. What a wonderful idea. However - and you must excuse Tulkinghorn for being such a pessimist - what of those poor employees whose birthday falls on a Saturday or Sunday? How galling would that be?
