Hi and welcome back to Bench Report! It’s almost the end of the year, and today’s newsletter will actually be the last until 2022, even though I refuse to believe it’s still not 2020. I hope you’re all able to take some time off and be with your friends and family as we ring in the New Year. Even though I’ll be trying to take some time away from my inbox, don’t let that stop you from sending your news, tips and feedback to [email protected]. And always feel free to follow me on Twitter at @jacq_thomsen.
