Soggy Biscuits

If this morning has gifted you a post-bank holiday slump, why not grab a Hobnob (the chocolate ones with the vanilla cream filling would be our suggestion) and see if you’re shortlisted for The Lawyer Awards this year.

As you dunk the Hobnob into a warm mug of Earl Grey, gaze at our impressive list of in-house candidates and picture how dapper you’ll look at London?s Grosvenor House Hotel on Tuesday 25 June (that’s the date of the awards, for those of you feeling particularly hazy today).

Just some of the legal teams shortlisted for an award this year include McDonald’s Restaurants, Channel 4, ITV, Premier Foods, Canada Life and Virgin Money.

We don’t want to pick favourites by telling you why these guys are so darn good at their jobs, so instead of daydreaming about the ball why not catch the thrills yourself.

It’s either that or your soggy biscuit.
