Realm Hotspot Talks To... Nick Johnson

Posted on 6/4/2016 by Katherine Memery

In the first of our ‘Realm Hotspot talks to’, we caught up with Nick Johnson, joint Managing Partner of established Manchester law firm, Glaisyers.

Starting with a light one, what is your favourite meal and drink combination?

A crab sandwich and a glass of chilled white wine, having been for a swim to St Michaels Mount in Cornwall

Can you briefly summarise what your role at Glaisyers involves?

Besides being a litigator and running a department as joint managing partner, it is to make strategic decisions and to motivate people to success.

And why was it that you became a solicitor in the first place?  

I wanted to be part of a profession that can make an impact on the lives of individuals and their businesses.

What do you love most about your job?

The variety and daily challenges.

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing the legal profession?

Too much change that is not being properly thought through taking place too quickly; it is actually compromising our professional integrity to put the client first

And to finish, what do you prefer and why, holidays at home or holidays abroad?

Holidays at home. I love the southerly tip of Cornwall, with its dramatic coastline and the warm welcome you receive.
