Glamorous Solicitor 2016 - Round 1
16 December 2016
The hunt for the most Glamorous Solicitor of 2016 is
Each week RollOnFriday frames and mounts a portrait of a lawyer exhibiting superior style and presence. It may be his unconventional haircut. It may be her trout pout. It may simply be a devastating gaze to camera.
One thing it's not about is looks. All of the Glams could be ordinary, but instead they have cultivated (or declined to shave off) unique characteristics which raise them above the crowd. And thank goodness for that, because these heroic men and women are a bulwark against homogeneity in the profession.
RollOnFriday has whittled down the best of 2016 to the 17 most glamorous of the glamorous. Now it's up to you to pick your favourites and vote, as many times as you like. The five contenders with the lowest number of fans will be eliminated before Round 2 next week. The poll is

By a random look-up it seems Mr Khan's firm was closed down by the SRA at some point this year due to suspected dishonesty...
