Property search provider SearchFlow has welcomed last week’s publication of the review into hydraulic fracturing (fracking) by the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Richard Hinton, business development director at SearchFlow, said there are still further issues which require consideration and many unanswered questions as regards the impact on properties within the vicinity.

“House buyers are ever more concerned as to the environmental factors that can affect their enjoyment of a property,” he said. “Any potential blight that can be investigated has a value to house buyers. ‘Fracking’ will surely fall into this category and we would expect there to be a demand for searches that identified areas either licensed or which otherwise are suitable for this purpose.”

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
