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.
Given that The Lawyer’s editorial team boasts its own massive Antipodean contingent, there were a few red faces when we noticed that we’d published a photo of a New Zealand flag proudly waving above an article about Australia. But we didn’t realise it would generate such a torrent of responses. Some were humorous. Others revealed a group of lawyers who take themselves far too seriously. But here’s a little excerpt from one of our favourites, which came from Chris Hunt in the legal team at Spelthorne Borough Council: “Normally the confusion about the flag leads New Zealand to be lumbered with the rather ostentatious Oz (six white-starred) flag rather than our own more minimalist but nevertheless magnificent (four red-starred) standard.
“… I suggest you batten down the hatches for the response of outraged Ockers resident in the UK (if they even notice – most of them probably have no idea what a Kiwi flag looks like either and will think their own has just been ‘rebranded’ in their absence from Australia).”
