Solicitors – put away your chequebooks and pens.
Tonight more than one barrister will be popping open the champagne and it will all be on the bar (well, you know what we mean).
The celebrations will be in full flow this evening as the Bar Standards Board has decided that barristers can shower solicitors and clients with gifts and entertainment galore if they so wish (See story). Well, within reason that is.
But solicitors, make sure you don’t blush when getting a freebie off a barrister. The less you blush the bigger the prize according to the BSB guidelines.
We suggest an industrial makeover to hide those red faces.
