Few stories have quite the same frisson of irony as the following vignette picked up by one of Tulkinghorn’s spies in the legal community.
A personal injury partner at Harrison Clark is facing being struck off after he slapped a woman at a party to celebrate winning a court case. The lawyer pleaded guilty in court to the charge of assault and is now waiting to hear what devious punishment the Solicitors Regulation Authority is cooking up for him.
The lawyer’s name? Mr Savage.
