Just before we enter into the New Year, below is a quick glance at how we did in 2018.
In March we celebrated the firm’s 2nd anniversary. A small milestone, perhaps, but this was our opportunity to say thank you to our clients at a small gathering at our Bloomsbury office. We also raised a glass to the enlarged OPL team. We welcomed David who has formed the firm’s employment practice providing strategic, responsive and thoughtful advice to corporate and individual clients. We also gained secretarial support and, in September, were joined by our paralegal extraordinaire, Beth.
In June, Anna was delighted to be recognised by the Law Society for her role in the reshaping of copyright law for the digital age and her work for the photography industry, and included on the Law Society’s prestigious Solicitor of the Year shortlist. Achieving this recognition as a start-up, we took it as confirming the success of our innovative and collaborative legal practice.
Helping Creators of all kinds
The range of our clients broadened and diversified this year. We gave advice on copyright, trade mark, personal data protection and commercial law matters to global advertising companies, image rights clearance agencies, photo libraries and public institutions in the arts, heritage and charitable sectors. Our employment practice assisted hotel and leisure groups, consulting firms, construction companies, and health and beauty SMEs, as well as Board members in their executive or individual capacity.
We intend to build on this year’s success and hope for, and wish all our clients and friends of the firm, resilience and ability to adapt to new challenges in 2019 as they will undoubtedly come. As global commerce becomes increasingly complex, we also wish you good intuition – which we can help put into a legal framework.
