My Favourite Tipples from a Global Law Firm Research Specialist
Wednesday, 18th December 2013

Liz Hawkes manages a research team for a global law firm and provides us with a list of her favourite tipples, both those she uses for client work as well as a personal favourite: the Invisible Woman blog from the Guardian, dedicated to style and tips for ladies over 40. In a professional context Liz chooses sites covering marine shipping, hard-to-find overseas company registration information, old government documents and one which will automatically monitor webpage updates so you know, for example, when progress has been made on cases or legislative documents.
