Tulkinghorn and all of his male scribes are gearing up to grow moustaches for Movember, a charity scheme set up for everyday people to become 1970s legends and raise some money for prostate cancer sufferers in the process.
The four reporters are pictured below on day three, but log on to TheLawyer.com every Monday until December to see how those upper lips are getting on.
Tulkinghorn encourages everyone else in the legal world capable of growing a moustache, both male and female, to do the same – if only to make the members of Team Tulkinghorn feel better about underlining their noses and parading around the City looking like East German football players.
