Death chambers

The shooting baton that was carried so successfully last week by Freshfields head honcho Hugh Crisp (he of the 212 grouse fame) was picked up this week by David Baylis, head of private equity at Norton Rose.

Baylis’s excuse for his no-show at this Wednesday’s (19 January) stellar Hot 100 party is that he’s taking clients shooting in Betws-y-Coed.

Where will this endemic poshness lead Tulkinghorn next?
