Sadly, DWF senior solicitor James Neale (pictured) and his father Laurie, managing partner at ESN Solicitors in Birmingham, were beaten by two performing dogs in ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent competition last weekend.

But the good news is this may not be the last we’ve heard from father-and-sons singing group The Neales. James explains: ‘We have already received a lot of exciting offers to work with some well-established people in the [music] industry, so we are all excited to see what the future may bring.’

He will no doubt pay attention to the old showbiz adage about performing with animals, children or McKenzie friends.
