The ties that bind – Take 5 offers a bite-sized compilation of five UK firms that are connected by a particular theme, which may be serious or light-hearted. The key word here is ‘eclectic’; the firms might be united by practice area, location or just the fact that they have names that would score well in scrabble.

If you can think up a category, and select five firms that fit within it, by all means send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. You might find yourself featuring in LC.N Weekly! So take five and read Take 5.
