Dentons lawyer wins Christmas quiz

Money is chosen, again. No offense taken, again.


A Dentons lawyer was crowned smartest brainbox by winning the RollOnFriday Christmas quiz.

Despite RollOnFriday’s readership of hardly any real thick, only 31 respondents answered all 12 questions correctly / could be required to re-read the Year’s Review article. This week, RollOnFriday linked each of their names to individual hamsters and placed all of the pet rodents in a giant hamster ball. A RollOnFriday intern placed her hand in the ball, and the first hamster to bite on her pinky was named after the winner, which was (drumbeat) … Georgina Kirkwood, a TMT associate at Dentons.

With the choice of £ 100 or a lunch with the RollOnFriday team, Georgina went for the money because of the possibility that the Omicron wave will never end (and nothing, of course, to do with the prospect of having lunch with the ROF team).

“I am delighted and very honored to have won the ROF Christmas Quiz,” said Georgina. “I hope this is not the peak of my legal career and the limits of my business conscience, but it is an accomplishment. Please fill my inbox with the lightest news and developments in the legal market every year. week.” Georgina gets top marks again for her commentary.
