    Why is this being advertised?! Do they want the terrorist to knock on his door and hunt him down?!

    I have a feeling that what with all that's going on, those teenage terrorists might be a little too busy to read legal news on their Blackberries.

  • Legal News?

    The BBC's Today programme is hardly legal news, unless you think otherwise.

  • Shameless

    I thought the blatant FFW name dropping during the interview was shocking "Yes, FFW do a lot of work in India!!" But if that's the way you have to sell yourself, so be it.

    Don't be silly please, Mark Abell is now having extremely tuff times there, still being locked in his room (21:26 CET). He probably mentioned FFW just because he was on business trip there for his firm. Be decent.

  • No surprise

    Why am I not surprised by the shameless self-promotion at a time when so many people were suffering?

  • FFW

    So what firm does Mark Abell work for exactly?! It's a joke that someone who is in a life or death situation would take the opportunity to try to win some work for FFW!

  • Embarrassed to be a lawyer

    What an embarrassment to the legal profession this guy is. I am a former City solicitor working in house; i don't read the Lawyer these days and i don't normally go on comment boards. But the namedropping of his firm through the Today interview takes the biscuit and has driven me to this site to comment; no wonder people think lawyers are tw*ts. What an inappropriate time to try and promote one's third division law firm.

  • Sad

    I was sad to read the lack of sympathy presumably fellow lawyers for someone in such extreme dange, braving a horrific and completely unexpected encounter of terrorism.

    I think he has been extremely brave and shown high character in daring to report to the news whilst he was barrackaded in his room so that we could know what was happening in Mumbai.

    I think he is an example to others of how a lawyer being able to handle a horrific situation very well. I think we should be inspired by the courage and spirit that he has demonstrated.
