The Longest Holiday of Your Life
“If you are thinking of packing the law in, why not pack some books on retirement? Partner Retirement in Law Firms: Strategies for Partners, Law firms and other Professional Services by Ronnie Fox (Globe Law and Business, £95) is a good guide.
Lawyers are often excellent at supporting clients but not always as good at advising themselves. The book looks at retirement from the firm’s perspective, the individual concerned, accounting and tax consideration, financial aspects and what is next after retirement. (This is about the possibility of another career not the afterlife – although we should plan for that as well!). Each chapter is written by knowledgeable writers, and is edited by an expert in this area. Retirement is described in the book as the ‘longest holiday of your life’ which seems a bit daunting to me, but this is an excellent guide whether that holiday is in the Caribbean or a tent in a windswept car park.”
