• And finally… LinkedIn – a quick trawl has revealed that Stuart Holden, previously the head honco at Axxia before it was acquired by LexisNexis, is currently 'on sabbatical' working as a self-employed photographer in Europe. And, that Gordon McAlpine, last heard of sailing on his yacht around the Med after selling Bighand in an MBO/venture capital deal, is now back in the UK, as a 'sales director working on a new venture'. This latter development has fuelled feverish speculation in some quarters that he may be planning to re-enter the legal tech market and possibly even buy back Bighand from the V-Cs.

Yeah, right. Have a good Easter
