This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Congratulations are due to Norton Rose partner Pete Talibart. The employment partner recently returned from the 2005 World Masters Games in Edmonton, Canada, clutching a silver medal.
Canadian-born Talibart was playing rugby union for the home team, the Edmonton Leprechaun Tigers (catchy name), which came second in the aged 35-49 competition.
Sadly, having battled their way to the ultimate game in five earlier matches, the Tigers were battered 31-5 by fellow Canadians the Cowichan Barbarians. There's no love lost, even for compatriots, in rugby.
