The Kain Knight team

Kain Knight, a leading firm of Costs Lawyers, held their own warm-up to the forthcoming World Cup 2014 by inviting several leading law firms and barrister’s chambers to participate in a friendly, though not always, knock-out football tournament in “trendy” Shoreditch, London.

On an exceptionally cold evening last Friday,  eight teams took to the astro turf for the glory of winning the Kain Knight trophy and, after a very hard fought final between Slater & Gordon and Collyer Bristow, Slater & Gordon were victorious at 4-3.

Matthew Kain, Director of Kain Knight, said “following the success of this event, it is intended to make this an annual event and we look forward to welcoming teams again in 2015”.

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.
