Signs of the dedication needed to run law firms north of the border reached Tulkinghorn last week when it emerged that Burness's sprightly chairman Philip Rodney has just hired a personal trainer.
"I'm attempting to hold back the years," claimed Rodney, who added that the trainer was in the habit of doing things to his legs that caused so much pain that "they must be doing me some good".
Of more pressing concern to Rodney when he met with one of Tulkinghorn's scribes for a spot of lunch last Tuesday (1 May) was how his decision to reference This is Spinal Tap at Burness's annual partner conference would go down with the crowd.
"I'm terrified no one will get the joke," admitted the Burness head man. The conference was last Thursday (3 May), but the results will be revealed in next week's instalment of Tulkinghorn.
