Crazy Nights at K&L Gates

We’ve all been there. It’s the formal dinner on the last night of the annual partner conference. You want to look like you’ve made an effort and dress smart, but you don’t want to look like this is the only night of the year your wife lets you out to play.

Solution? For Kirkpatrick and Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis (K&L Gates) the answer lies in fancy dress. K&L Gates corporate partner Owen Waft is in full support of the firm’s annual themed fancy dress evening on the last night of the annual conference.

Waft explained that his favourite so far was the pop star event. Waft and four colleagues donned some make-up to become Kiss for the night.

While Waft’s three unfortunate colleagues were not so keen on the super-tight costumes, Waft was off to the fancy-dress shop rubbing his hands with glee.

Tulkinghorn suspects Waft would not be averse to donning the leotard and dressing up like Gene Simmons in the office from time to time.
