CCing is heaving

Tulkinghorn hears that partners at Clifford Chance are getting up close and personal lately.

At a recent meeting one senior banking partner quipped to a senior capital markets partner: “It’s good to see you with your clothes on.”

His slightly stunned colleague was quick to confirm that the pair had in fact merely seen in each other in the firm’s swimming pool.

Tulkinghorn assumes that skinny-dipping is not permitted in the pool and that both partners were obeying the rules.
