Son in law

Once we pass a certain age, we all begin to regret the passing of another year and another birthday.

Cloisters barrister Philip Engelman, however, celebrated his birthday yesterday (Sunday 25 January) with plenty to ponder.

Engelman recently penned an opinion piece in The Lawyer with his younger brother by six years, 7 New Square’s Mark Engelman.

After spying the accompanying photograph, a Treasury solicitor acting on the other side of a case in which Engelman senior was acting, enquired as to whether “he always wrote articles with
his son?”

That cheeky Engelman junior begged Tulkinghorn for leave to send his big bruv his warmest wishes in these pages, and Tulkinghorn is only too happy to oblige: “Happy Birthday Pops!”
