  • There's no background about Mr Sullivan either here or in DLA Piper's press release. I wonder why ... as the firm itself says, "Everything Matters". Let's see what the Times says:

    Sullivan, 55, owns Britain's biggest licensed sex shop group, the 90-strong Private Shops, and a property portfolio that has grown in value. The Welsh-born publisher entered the porn market at 21 while working at one of Gerald Ronson's (qv) petrol stations. His day job paid him £30 a week but he made £700 to £800 weekly producing porn pictures and flogging sheets of 50 photos for £1 by mail order. By the mid-1970s he had half of the adult magazine market. Soon he and the Gold brothers (qv) joined forces. In 1986 they launched Sunday Sport.

    Right, I think I get it now.
