Is it just a coincidence that a corporate finance star who goes by the name of ‘Colin Davenport’ has decided to join a Manchester firm called ‘Berg’ Legal? A strange similarity of face, a four-letter word beginning with ‘B’? How many clues do you need? “My fellow Manchesterians,” said Davenport (allegedly) on joining, “we look forward to working with you. Let me put it another way: we look forward to hearing your vision, so we can more better do our job. That’s what I’m telling you.” The lawyer went on to explain his love of Manchester, citing his love of The Beatles, Robbie Fowler, the Grand National and how he was looking forward to taking a ferry across the Mersey.
