This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
As reported on www.thelawyer.com (10 July), there was a group of partners who (officially or unofficially, depending on whether you take the Freshfields or Bloxham view) represented the interests of the older partners at the firm. They called themselves the Grey Panthers and were headed by banking partner David Ereira, who is now at Linklaters, and corporate partner Lois Moore, who is now at Shearman & Sterling.
Dinah Rose QC even broke her barrage of quick-fire questions to quip: "I suppose they were called grey because of their age and their probable hair colour. But then, some of them may have had no hair at all."
Tulkinghorn can't possibly think to whom Rose was referring, but can assure readers that Moore, at least, has a lustrous head of honey-coloured hair.
