The tale of sisters Anna and Della Burnside is less one of separated at birth than inseparable since birth. The identical twins (below) have just been made partners in the same month, Anna in the private client department of Penningtons and Della, an intellectual property litigator, at Osborne Clarke.

In the picture, they are also wearing virtually identical clothes, the same earrings and virtually the same shade of lipstick.
