The MoneyLaw companion
Not the brightest at regulation faculty however “a good sort”. Walked right into a TC in the noughties after they grew on timber.

Made companion, received divorced … to be sincere it’s all a bit of a blur. PEP hit $5 million throughout lockdown. Doesn’t see a lot of the household however has grown near monetary advisor. At the moment saving up for a non-public jet.
The boomer QC
Tweets hourly in sympathy with the oppressed. In between does bits of work for £1,000/hour and tends to purchase to let portfolio. Misses Tony Blair an incredible deal. Genuinely baffled by the rise of populism on the left and proper. Uncertain which option to go on the trans debate. Will get offended simply by fascinated with Brexit and the spiralling value of home assist.
The ‘my head could be turned’ authorized help lawyer
Nope, undoubtedly no regrets about turning down these magic circle TC presents to do a legal regulation pupillage. Excels each day at complicated and stimulating authorized help work, whereas turning into ever extra embittered by the cash. Privately funded legal defence work could be an choice if the shoppers weren’t so terrible. Maybe the CPS or the GLS could be a greater guess. However would that imply Dominic Raab (who they did a vac scheme with at Hyperlinks in the late 90s) could be their boss?
The in-house lawyer tech bro
Wears Converse and a hoody to work, over a shirt and tie, with gown footwear in a bag underneath the desk to be turned into for conferences.

In non-public moments fantasises about shifting to the authorized workforce of a regional insurer.
The tired-with-life trainee
Hasn’t logged off earlier than 10pm for the reason that first lockdown. Now sustained solely by ideas of ‘filthy NQ lucre’ and bragging rights in the Authorized Cheek feedback part. Tries to not let associated ideas intrude about greater charge tax, scholar mortgage repayments or the price of saving in the direction of a deposit for a flat in Zone 3, or maybe 4 or 5. However in the end is aware of it’ll all be price it for the pension. Then the nice instances can actually get rolling!
