Last week's The Lawyer Interview revealed that Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw's US partners are fond of comparing London senior partner Paul Maher with Hugh Grant. They apparently find his "schoolboy banter" hilarious. Tulkinghorn can't help feeling that they've got confused with another Hugh - former Liverpool and England football legend Emlyn Hughes.
