Comment on divorce & family law 

Stress in the workplace, not here

Stress in the workplace is a major headache for employers and employees in this day and age. It is not necessarily that things didn’t get stressful in the past but it just seems that the demands of an increasingly fast-paced life, coupled with economic (and domestic) pressures, combine to create more of a crucible than ever before.As to which profession is most stressful – what do you think?

Some mischief maker has taken it upon themselves to publish what they claim to be accurate details of the celebrities involved in the super-injunctions we have been hearing so much about.Effectively, this is where those in the spotlight have used European law to protect their privacy, preventing newspapers from publishing stories about alleged infidelities and other details in their personal life.
