Silky’s briefs

Tulkinghorn had the honour of attending Littleton Chambers’ spring party at Lord’s Cricket Ground recently. Fine wine and fine company contributed to a satisfying evening, during which Tulkinghorn met perhaps the luckiest lawyer alive.

Alex Carter-Silk, a trademark partner at Manches, counts drop-dead gorgeous supermodel Elle MacPherson as a client. The man is forced to lunch with the glamour girl regularly, whereupon the two discuss the branding of her lingerie product line. He, literally, handles her briefs.

Tulkinghorn suggests you think of this injustice when, at 2am in the morning, you find yourself checking through offering circulars in a drafty meeting room.
