A third Olympic flame torchbearer from the legal profession has come to Obiter’s attention. Matt King, a trainee solicitor in the personal injury team at Stewarts Law was given the stint in Dunstable after being nominated by his grandad. A rugby accident at the age of 17 left King paralysed from the neck down but he has completed the Great North Run twice and the New York marathon.
He was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list for services to spinal injury charities. King’s impressive achievements led Obiter to wonder if there are any solicitors wearing Team GB kit for 2012? Do let us know.
