Separated at birth

Ricky Gervais went from cheeky comedy midget to world star on the back of his hit TV show The Office in the legendary form of David Brent. But riding on the coat-tails of that success were his co-stars.

Tulkinghorn notes that Martin Freeman, the actor who played the long-suffering Tim Canterbury in the show, went on to far better things.

Namely, becoming global IP head at Lovells and leading the firm’s practice through an international expansion in the form of Burkhart Goebel. Tulkinghorn supposes that Goebel still likes to put the odd stapler in jelly.
