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.
News reaches Tulkinghorn that the chaps at Schillings, those libel lawyers extraordinaire, pulled out all the stops to ensure a suitably high ranking in the legal directories this year.
During the interminable research period, former TV star Angus Deayton called a researcher to help establish the celeb lawyers' credentials. The lass, it appears, was suitably impressed by a call from the well-known frequenter of hotels (oh, to have listened in on that one), and the firm received a glowing report.
Tulkinghorn had heard rumours that the chaps at Schillings were vertiginous rankers. This has now been confirmed.
