CIVIL LITIGATION BRIEF “LAWYER OF THE YEAR 2019”: ISHAN KOLHATKAR : HARD WORK, UNDER PRESSURE OF TIME LED TO A REMARKABLE RESULT

There was never any doubt about who was going to be the “lawyer of the year” – the editor in chief (indeed the only editor) of the Billable Hour Cookbook – Ishan Kolhatkar.

 

THE ACHIEVEMENT

Ish took what was basically a whimsical exchange of views on Twitter and turned it into a real live book. In the process raising (last time I heard) £11,000 for Save the Children. It is difficult to underestimate the amount of work he did on the way.

  • Advertising the idea.
  • Collating and editing the recipes.
  • Designing the book (which has photographs of every recipe).
  • Arranging the publishing.
  • Arranging distribution.
  • Distributing the books (around central London) in person (with a little help from his friends).

The hours and hours of work that have gone into this leave me in no doubt at all that Ish is the winner (and its my blog…).  The job was done under a tremendous amount of time pressure too – Ish was anxious to get the book out to catch the Christmas market.

THE AWARD
