Doing quite nicely

I have received the following press release from Messrs. Venal & Grabbit, Solicitors:


London, 15th August 2011: Not wanting anyone to think that their partners were in the poverty sub-£1 million earnings bracket, Venal & Grabbit wish to explain why they do not appear in The Lawyer million-pound table this year.

The reason for the omission is quite simple: as anyone who knows them will tell you, the partners at Venal & Grabbit are very modest people who are not driven by pure profit, but rather by an altruistic desire to serve their clients, and society in general. Indeed, they find the whole idea of such a table to be somewhat distasteful, particularly in this harsh economic climate. Accordingly, they have requested that their earnings not be disclosed to the taxman The Lawyer.

In fact, due partly to a gratifyingly healthy increase in insolvency work, the partners at Venal & Grabbit are doing quite nicely, thank you very much.
