Basic CMYKOn Sunday, the intrepid team of 25 CLS employees came together to run the Vitality British 10K London Run in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The weather did not rain on the CLS parade and despite a few aches, pains and knee complaints all 25 elated runners crossed the finish line. Not only did everyone do sub 1hr 30 mins, but our fastest time was Jean-Claude with an impressive 45 mins!

The motivation to cross the line, came in an effort to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital; a charity favoured by the team for their efforts to provide vital up-to-date equipment and fund research into better treatments for children.

So far the team have raised just over £30,000. The team would like to thank everyone who supported and sponsored them for this vital cause. Any supporters who haven’t had an opportunity to sponsor the team already are invited and encouraged to do so at https://www.justgiving.com/CLS10k/.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
