Tulkinghorn loves a thorough and professional PR bod, and they don’t come much better than those hugely efficient fellows at Grandfield.
Their particular brand of genius was displayed to its fullest possible extent when they attempted to come to the rescue of client Fladgate Fielder.
The firm, which is facing a negligence action from former client John Mundy over an investment scheme run by Serious Fraud Office investigation subject Orb, filed its defence two weeks ago. Nobody appears to have told Grandfield, however.
A PR flunky monkey told a hack from The Lawyer – twice – that the client had no idea it was getting sued, despite the fact that Fladgates had received the claim last month and had already served its defence. Committed? Or crackpot?
