Lawyers toasting one more victory;
Judges nipping at their robes;
Yuletide bundles and their tabs, one, two, three;
Defendants flinch as counsel probes.
Everybody knows the court is the last place to go;
Helps to make everything right.
Each party with their eyes all aglow,
Will not go down without a fight.
They know that justice is on its way.
And hopefully that they are not the ones to pay.
And your solicitor is gonna try,
For after all, they are your closest ally.
And so, we’re offering this simple phrase,
To all writers and readers too.
Although it’s been said many times, many ways,
Thank you so much, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to you.
The Practical Law Dispute Resolution Blog will resume in early January 2020. Until then, from the Practical Law Dispute Resolution team, thank you to our contributors for their stellar pieces, to you for reading, and best wishes for a joyful festive period.
