Irwin Mitchell Real Estate team

Lawyers from Irwin Mitchell’s Real Estate team have got on their bikes to support the Canal & River Trust by tackling the charity’s mammoth 240-mile coast to coast challenge.

Held across three days last week, the Great British Bike Off started in Blackpool and saw riders make their way across Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales – taking in sections of the leg of the Tour de France held in the region last year – to a finish in Scarborough.

All of the money raised by the cycling event goes towards supporting the work of Canal & River Trust, who will use the donation to conserve, restore and enhance canals and rivers or to educate people about them.

David Goy and Paul Barnard, associate solicitors from Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield and Manchester-based Real Estate teams, went along for the ride and to support the charity, which is also a valued client of the firm.

Commenting on the challenge, David said: “We were delighted to get involved in this fantastic event, taking on some challenging and beautiful landscape while raising vital funds to support the brilliant work of the Canal & River Trust.

“We are very proud of our long-running relationship with the charity, which is involved in hugely important projects across England and Wales, and it was great to take part in this challenge for the second consecutive year.

“We’re already looking forward to getting involved again next year!”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

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.
