Property searches giant SearchFlow, a Legal Futures Associate, has raised £18,000 for health charities after the company’s volunteers canoed, cycled and ran across the Brecon Beacons.

The intrepid employees raised £9,000 in sponsorship for the Kent-based Demelza children’s hospice, which the company matched with a further £9,000 donation to the Kent Air Ambulance.

The gruelling Welsh challenge involved an 11-kilometre canoe trip down the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and a 25-kilometre off-road mountain bike along the Taff Trail, followed by a 17-kilometre run to Cwn Gwydi.

“At Searchflow we were proud to put on such a charitable event,” said managing director Andrew Lloyd, adding: “Though it was exhausting, it was a lot of fun and we’re so pleased to be supporting these two charities.

Not everything went to plan on the day, however. The mountain biking team took a wrong turn that took them to “the middle of nowhere” and back via a long detour. Searchflow sales director Stuart Webster said: “We were all pretty sore by the time we got to the point where we should have gone right instead of left. And we still had 20 kilometres left to cycle.”

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

Robert Ambrogi

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.
