Psychic Predictions 2022 - how well did he do in 2021?

Annual Predictions - how did the professional psychic do? We have been following the predictions of Craig Hamilton-Parker of psychics.co.uk for some years now - it is fascinating to see how he fares every year with his previous year's predictions. Here are a selection of his predictions for 2021 taken from his website at the start of the year: https://psychics.co.uk/blog/predictions/ There will be a tsunami near Japan - correct! Tsunami 13/02/2021 Giant iceberg causes shipping problems - giant A68A iceberg broke off in Antartica, but no shipping problems apparently? There will be strikes and protests in the USA, the UK and Europe. Very violent protests occur in Paris, London and Washington. - hard to quantify as there are always strikes! North Korea will fire more missiles. There will be starvation in North Korea and moves to remove Kim Jong-un by his own people - correct in part - although no signs of moves to remove Kim Jong-un reported. New infrastructure projects will be announ

Legal Job Market Report December 2021

Here is our summary of the current state of the legal job market: Locum Recruitment - Busy The locum market still remains busy for this time of year than ever before, with a 100% increase in the number of assignments last month compared with the same time last year. We are starting to see availability for just about every assignment coming our way which remains a huge improvement on the summer season. Conveyancing locums are available in most areas now. Other fields of law are generally not too bad at all, although family locums are a little scarce at the moment. Most corporate and commercial areas still attract a lot of interest, whether in private practice or in house. Locum assignment updates here: https://www.interimlawyers.co.uk/category/locum-solicitor-updates/ Permanent Recruitment - Busy There remains a shortage of good candidates for most jobs and we are now into the traditional dip in the market prior to the Christmas break. Most people have better things to do than apply for

Law Firm Sales - making sure you are not the asset for sale

A practice might have a senior partner, two or three consultants, junior fee earners and support staff. The owner will probably do the vast majority of the work but also it is likely he/she will also be the person who doesn’t want to carry on working once the sale has gone through. Sellers tend to expect a lump sum to be paid for the practice upfront and for themselves to leave and stop working within a period of a maximum of six to nine months. Buyers on the other hand instantly see things differently. Feedback after some initial meetings can be that as far as they can see all the value is in the seller and there is very little else up for sale. The buyer cannot understand why a £400,000 turnover practice is for sa
