Tulkinghorn recently dispatched a mole to Thomas Eggar's 'Kaleidoscope of Colour' party at the South East firm's Gatwick office.
Amid the throng the minion mingled with private client associate Nicola Plant, who described her experience of contacting the great man.
"I wrote to Tulkinghorn once," Plant said, breathlessly. "But he never replied. I sent him a picture of me windsurfing to show that private client lawyers really do have lives." Of course they do Nicola.
