In brief: Red Nose day grabs law firms' attention

Senior partners at Stephenson Harwood turned into waiters and waitresses to serve staff afternoon tea last week, as part of week-long series of events to raise money for Comic Relief. Other events included producing a firm recipe book, auctioning Eurostar vouchers and participating in a Comic Relief fun run. The practice hopes to raise about £4,000 for the cause from its activities. Staff at 20 City firms also dressed down for Red Nose Day.
