Right man, wrong firm

Congratulations to Tilda Swinton who won an Oscar last week for her role in the movie Michael Clayton. Swinton plays the general counsel of a corporation being sued for poisonous pollution.

It seems that some of that poisonous pollution found its way into the brain of one of Tulkinghorn’s scribes last week, when we revealed the identity of the real Michael Clayton, who, according to our scribe, is alive and well and working at US firm Morgan & Finnegan.

Indeed there is a real Michael Clayton, who is really flattered by the film and the ensuing media coverage in publications such as The Lawyer. But he’s a partner at Morgan Lewis & Bockius.
