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!”

Gathering speed: The lawtech start-up world you can no longer ignore

Technology

If there are any lawyers out there who are starting to relax, believing that predictions of the demise of law as we have known it in the face of technological change have been exaggerated, they should think again as 2017 begins. A growing hum of activity by the sort of bright and industrious people who have transformed the world in many other respects is being heard in legal corridors hitherto largely undisturbed by the modern world. As their ideas achieve traction, they will disrupt the profession and perhaps even displace lawyers who imagined their careers were set to last a lifetime.
