Play time

Thanks to Linklaters for inviting Tulkinghorn down to its annual – and by now surely traditional – Christmas party at Hamleys last Tuesday (5 December). As usual the champagne flowed and the gathered clients, lawyers and occasional hack mingled among the toys.

Tulkinghorn was particularly happy to spot IT partner John Crozier taking advantage of the 10 per cent discount to top up his Christmas shopping – a wise man.

Sadly he failed to spy any Linklaters partners on the air guitar machine in the basement – a shame, as seeing Chris Millard banging out Smoke on the Water would have made his night complete.
