Lawyers at play

Pinsent Curtis banking lawyer Patrick Twist recently completed a Triathlon. Swapping pinstripes for a wet suit, the head of project finance joined two banking clients, Andrew Cunnell and John Handley, on a mile-long swim followed by a 40km cycle and a 10km run.

16 firms took part in a six-hour knock-out pool contest, which saw Pannone & Partners lose the final to Halliwell Landau. “We were surprised by a larger than expected turn-out, obviously reflecting the degenerate background of Manchester's lawyers,” said organiser Nick Lees from recruitment firm Anakin Seal.
