Irwin Mitchell’s special 007-themed Bond Ball

James Bond fans turned on the glitz and the glamour in Manchester in the name of charity last week, raising £14,000 for the Prince’s Trust at a special 007-themed ball organised by national law firm Irwin Mitchell.

The black-tie event at The Hilton Deansgate on Thursday (November 5) saw guests enjoy a host of Bond-style entertainment throughout the evening, including film props, music from the films and the odd shaken martini thrown in the mix.

Irwin Mitchell’s Manchester office organised the event, arranged to coincide with the release of new 007 adventure Spectre, as part of its involvement in the Prince’s Trust Million Makers initiative.

The national competition challenges corporate teams to work together and come up with ideas to raise £1 million in aid of the charity.

Christopher Perrin, a partner in Irwin Mitchell’s Property Litigation team who helped to arrange the event as part of the challenge, said: “We are delighted that our event proved to be draw and helped to raise such an amount for the fantastic Prince’s Trust.

“Irwin Mitchell is very proud of its corporate social responsibility commitments and we are delighted to once again call on the community across Manchester to help us support a fantastic charity which does such important work.

“There are few better excuses to embrace a bow tie, tuxedo and a bit of glamour than a Bond-themed ball and we’re glad that so many people enjoyed the night.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
