Legal spend

Tulkinghorn has become aware of a very strange trend of late. Apparently, numerous lawyers around the City have been found in the toilets singing Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On à la Ally McBeal. On further investigation, Tulkinghorn can now reveal the reason why.

On 19 November, three city lawyers are launching a new dating service for lawyers and other city professionals. The service is based on the 40 dates a night concept (as if lawyers weren't exhausted enough already), which means clients spend five minutes with a potential date before moving on to the next candidate.

The three Cilla Blacks of the legal world are an insurance associate at Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, a barrister (whose chambers does not wish to be named – please!) and an in-house lawyer at Aurora.

For those lawyers wishing to join the trend, check out the website, www.michiamo.com (Italian for 'my name is' – aaaaah, how romantic).
