  1. How was September at Burley Law?

September was a great and busy month here at Burley Law.  We all returned from our summer holidays and it was lovely having everyone back together in the office.  September has been full of new and interesting pieces of work and well as brainstorming new ideas to help the firm grow.  We also have a lot of initiatives in the works, so stay posted to find out more soon.

  1. What are you currently working on?

I am currently working with Liz, our HR and Employment Law specialist, on a wide range of employment law matters.  From drafting contracts of employment to settlement agreements, no single piece of work is the same and I have loved delving deeper into the interesting yet complex world of employment law.  Throughout the month, I have also worked with Des on various IP and Commercial queries including drafting NDAs, reviewing Data Protection Policies, and of course trade marks!  

  1. What stood out for you this month?

September is always special to me as I love to celebrate my birthday at the beginning of the month, but this year I had double celebrations, as the next day was my birthday at Burley Law!  I was amazed at how quickly the last 12 months have gone, the progress I’ve made and the brilliant things I’ve been a part of since joining the firm.  Just in March I was writing about how I had found my first 6 months (read here for an insight) and now I’m reflecting on a whole year – it truly is crazy how time flies when you’re having fun.  Des, Liz and the team have made my first year at Burley Law extremely memorable and I can’t wait to see what the next (of hopefully many) year holds for me.

  1. What are you looking forward to in the next month?

I’m looking forward to a lot of things in October – on the 5th we will be hosting our quarterly roundtable event, focussing on IP commercialisation in universities.  It’s also World Menopause Awareness month and I will be attending the Perimenopause and Menopause Awareness event at The Night Owl Birmingham on Saturday 8thOctober (register here), co-hosted by our very own Liz!  This event will provide an understanding of perimenopause and menopause, how to combat symptoms and help breakdown the stigma around it.  Birmingham Tech Week will be running from the 10th-14th October, an exciting time for our tech-specialist firm and we are excited to see what new advances there are in the industry.  I’m also looking forward to seeing the Halloween decorations around town and of course edging closer to Christmas!
