It's true. The legal profession is lightening up. At least that's what those peering through the window at the The Lawyer's recent Hot 100 photo shoot must have been thinking.
With a set that resembled an out-take from Sesame Street, Tulkinghorn - quaffing a glass of bubbly provided by the ever-jovial Mourant CEO Stephen Ball - guffawed as a procession of slightly bewildered 'hotties' posing with giant letters and numbers.

As one of the more senior hotties quipped: "We're really putting the hot into Hot 100."
Unfortunately he was talking about perspiration rather than sex appeal.
