Liz Hawkes manages a research team for a global law firm and provides us with a list of her favourite tipples, both those she uses for client work as well as a personal favourite: the Invisible Woman blog from the Guardian, dedicated to style and tips for ladies over 40. In a professional context Liz chooses sites covering marine shipping, hard-to-find overseas company registration information, old government documents and one which will automatically monitor webpage updates so you know, for example, when progress has been made on cases or legislative documents.
Running a research team for a global law firm brings a fresh challenge every day, from requests for assistance with client work that spans over several weeks to urgent queries that have to be done in say, oh, the next five minutes. Add in to that mix current awareness work, updates, monitoring, news alerts and training programmes for trainees, summer students, interns, plus inductions for new starters and it makes for a busy and varied working day. Here are my favourite tipples that are currently helping me through.
