Merry Christmas and a happy new year

enter image description here

It's that time of year when most law firms will run some kind of "Merry Christmas — here's a year in review" blogpost, which is basically a "hey, look at everything we've done this year — you should hire us next year!".

They're probably better at marketing than I am, but, frankly, you've all been doing what you need to do to get through your own challenges in 2020, and I doubt you give a toss that we helped with a whole load of Internet, telecoms, and tech issues for our amazing clients.

Instead, I'm just going to inflict on you the poor GDPR-related Christmas pun you can see in our Christmas card above, and wish you all a merry Christmas, and a happy new year.

Thank you

If I have had the pleasure of working with you this year, thank you.

I love what I do, and that's due in no small part to having amazing clients, doing interesting and usually geeky things.

We're taking some time off

As those of you who run your own small / solo businesses will know, there's a skill to taking time off. And it's a skill I've not mastered.

Sandra and I are going to be taking a couple of weeks off. It's the first real time off we've had this year, and we're looking forward to thinking about things other than legal advice, and running a business, for a few days.

We'll be back, hopefully refreshed, on 4th January 2021.

But I need you urgently!

I'd be lying if I said that I won't be keeping an eye on my email.

I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I find not knowing what is going on way more stressful than just keeping an eye on things.

If something is genuinely urgent, you know I'll be there for you.

I'm always best on calls if we've scheduled them in advance, rather than calling me out of the blue, but I'll try to answer if I recognise your number.
