Crafty Halloween Special!

A Halloween Crafty Counsel blog. Seasonal gags or puns? None of that, let’s get to business.

Surprised, shocked and grateful I am today for Crafty Counsel to be covered in not one, but two esteemed publications: The Times and Legal IT Insider. Alright, we sent them press releases, so maybe shock and surprise is a bit strong. But, hey, they read them! And, we are grateful.

Partnerships are great, and we are just spine-tingly pleased to have partnered with Linklaters on a special series on the legal issues faced by Challenger Banks (think Monzo, Revolut, OakNorth, Starling…). You can watch the trailer on our LinkedIn page…

Or, catch the first episode here (featuring Emma Clark and Bobby Butcher on legal group structuring for new banks). Thanks to Linklaters’ support, this eerily insightful entire series is available to all comers, even if you haven’t got around to taking your Crafty Counsel subscription yet. More episodes each week…

Other hair-raising recent box sets include our series with Simmons Wavelength on Legal Operations - more on that below - meanwhile…

Kate Sullivan is the General Counsel at Lonely Planet and her series with colleague Flora MacQueen covering Tech and Agile for the small legal team is so interesting I’d even call it frightening.

Your views are our top priority, so if you have any feedback on what we do, the subscription, or silly Halloween puns, please get in touch
