Tulkinghorn is bemused by the professions from which people come into the law and by those who leave it to do something totally different. Take Polly Browne, formerly a partner at Gordons Cranswick, who has stumbled on a rather unusual gap in the market - selling charitable Christmas cards to businesses. One wonders how on earth a career in the law could make one an authority on Christmas cards, let alone charity.
