Despite atrocious weather and a Tube strike, Kain Knight, one of the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers, successfully raised over £2,000 for charity at its first City of London pop quiz event on Wednesday night.

With around 120 lawyers and barristers representing 21 separate law firms and barristers’ chambers, Kain Knight’s charity evening raised £1,700 for national charity the Alzheimer’s Society, and £300 for local Kent charity Canterbury Oast Trust, which supports adults with learning disabilities.

The winning team were from law firm Charles Russell, who overcame fierce competition in a very close finish between a number of teams.

In the charity auction during the quiz, Clare Kelly, a partner from law firm Anthony Gold, made the highest bid of £220 for the star prize, which was having Kain Knight’s Chairman and founder Michael Kain work in her office for the day.

Kain Knight’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Petyt, who hosted the evening, said:

“I’d like to thank all those involved for their hard work who helped make the Kain Knight City pop quiz such a success. Despite the rotten weather and the industrial action on the Tube, we had a packed event, with our guests generously helping us to raise over £2,000 for two very good charities.  The feedback from everyone was so positive we have decided to make this an annual event.”

Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
