Getting the boot

A gem of an anecdote reaches Tulkinghorn this week. No names, no pack drill, but rumour has it that, while at a client function, and heavily under the influence, a partner at a national firm interrupted a conversation between another partner and a director of a major bank, got annoyed about something for no reason, kicked the other partner in the groin, and stomped off.

His departure from the firm followed soon after. Of course,
his exit could also be because, according to a source, “he never billed anything anyway”.
