Howard Meakin of Spratt Endicott Truman

Commercial property solicitor Howard Meakin of Spratt Endicott Truman has won tmgroup’s quarterly prize draw, bagging himself a coveted technology prize bundle.

Each quarter tmgroup asks conveyancers an industry-related question at legal conferences and exhibitions and, throughout January to March, tmgroup asked conveyancers: “When was the last time your firm increased your conveyancing fees?”

Although there was no ‘right answer’, all respondents were put into a draw with the winner chosen at random in April.

Featuring an iPad, a Fitbit, Bosch coffee machine and some other high-tech goodies, the prize bundle was presented to Mr Meakin (pictured) by tmgroup’s southern area manager Nick Ball.

Howard Meakin said:

“I am a complete technophobe but hopefully will be inspired by the iPad to become less so. It is a rather smart machine. I think the wristband heart monitor might be something to avoid as if I looked at it when I play squash (which I do regularly) I might be rather alarmed. Time to go and make a cup of coffee! Thank you again.”

tmgroup’s southern area manager Nick Ball said:

“We really look forward to getting to meet with our customers face-to-face at industry events and hope to see many more at exhibitions and sessions over the coming weeks and months.”

Look out for tmgroup at LegalEx and Professional conferences across the country and you could be in with a chance of winning the Q2 prize bundle!

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.
