“All the best to those being made redundant at such a horrible time of year and in such uncertain times. These things can happen to anyone. There is so much luck involved in a legal career — right trainee seats, right mentors, firm performing well at times you need it to, partnership prospects and rivals appearing/disappearing at the right points, health (mental and physical) holding out throughout the process of working your way up.
