Brief

In an attempt to sort out a spot of confusion, Michael Skrein, head of litigation at Richards Butler, took daughter Philippa to work last week. “My children were concerned to hear I was acting for Sylvester Stallone,” said Skrein. “They didn't think I had the body for it.” The move was part of the national 'Take your daughter to work' initiative which aims to bring more women to male-dominated jobs. “The office was a lot bigger than I expected and very busy,” said 15-year-old Philippa. And while the experience hasn't sold her on a legal career, she is “keeping an open mind”.
