Capsticks Solicitors

Her new job - started on Tuesday 6th January 2004

......and click here to see the "CONGRATULATIONS" card
we sent to Tanya

Tuesday 6th January 2004
Tuesday I started work
I didn't have to start until 9.30am because it was my first day
so when I caught the train I was the only one in the carriage
I decided that I loved this job already and I hadn't even started yet!
Such a change from sixteen stops, three trains and being stuck in peak hour armpits!
I am working for two people - Serena Davis and Rebecca Hunt (trainee)
They both seem really nice
but I have a feeling that Serena will be quite demanding because she is very busy!
Anyway I am on the 5th floor of the building
I did my IT training with a Kiwi boy and including me there are four Aussies on my floor
and there are seven floors so I expect there are a few more around.
We have a tea lady that comes arund with her trolley
and makes us tea/coffee twice a day
and at about 11.30am a boy comes around with sandwhiches
and wraps and chocolates to keep us satisfied too
I am really busy but liking it too
The cases are really interesting and Serena is away tomorrow
so I should be able to get organised and sort some stuff out!

Friday 16th January 2004
I have got a meeting with the Human Resources Department
at 5.00pm today to discuss my contract
Just got offered a contract for 12 months
It will be £XX which is a bit more than I thought it would be
How nice it will be to know I have a job for the next year!
My agency called and said that they were very happy with me
YAY again!

"Legal 500 2004" - Wednesday 29th September 2004
From - Peter of Capsticks Solicitors
The "Legal 500 2004" was published earlier this week,
and I am delighted to report that CAPSTICKS has once again achieved
very high ratings in this independently-researched directory
The firm was rated as the top Healthcare and Clinical Negligence (Defendant)
practice in London, and the commentary stated that
"CAPSTICKS has enhanced its position as the leading healthcare firm",
is "thoroughly deserving of its reputation as a dedicated market leader"
and "the firm's top-tier status once again reflects its pre-eminence"
We were also rated as a leading firm in Fraud, Employment and PFI,
where the competition is not just from firms in the healthcare sector
The "Legal 500" also recognised AXI, DPM, KEH and myself
as leading individuals in our respective fields
These ratings reflect very positively on everyone in the firm,
as they are based on interviews with our clients and other lawyers
Well done to you all!
Thanks also to the marketing team for their unstinting efforts
in producing our directory submissions each year

Capsticks - I got some "leaving presents" today

and I also got a rose quartz necklace which is meant to promote happiness
Anyway, just thought it would let you know
