Which well-known corporate partner at Linklaters fell asleep in the property precedents room when he was a trainee? The young lawyer had been out at a bachelor party the night before when his supervisor, a senior property associate, sent him up to the property cupboard to do some research. The trainee thought he'd get in a bit of crafty shut-eye. Instead of a quick power nap though, he fell asleep for three hours. When he came down his testy female supervisor warned him to shape up or it was curtains. Presumably he listened because he is now one of the most prolific deal-doers at the firm. He still likes the odd pint or three though.
