The article presents an interview with Moira Gilmour, managing partner-elect of Field Fisher Waterhouse. When asked about her first-ever job, she refers to a record shop in Edinburgh. She believes that spending the day with bailiffs in a very disadvantaged part of Glasgow was her worst experience as a trainee.

She reports that currently she is reading the book "Open Secret," by Stella Rimington.
