Not only has this man almost singlehandedly battled for a new law of privacy and helped his firm, Schillings, win The Lawyer Award for Niche Firm of the Year 2002 - he has also completed a touch-typing course.
Schilling is so proud of this achievement that the certificate proclaiming him a touch-typist worthy of any temping job has been displayed in the firm's reception area, hung just above The Lawyer Award plaque.
Tulkinghorn does wonder: did Campbell, who is known for the odd outburst of anger, scare Keith's secretary so much that he had to type up the supermodel's notes himself?
