Identity bereft

Was Oliver Bretz auditioning for Gone in 60 Seconds 3: Laying Down the Law recently? The Clifford Chance partner was motoring around in his Audi one weekend when the competition star -legendary for his willingness to dress down at the weekend – was pulled over by the law.

The rozzers were unimpressed with Bretz’s plea that yes, it really was his car, and yes, he really was a high-flying partner at one of the world’s top law firms. It took a lengthy call back to base to establish his credentials before he was on his way.
