Tulkinghorn has noted that diversity has become a much bigger concern for law firms in recent years, and he is all for it as well. But some firms might have taken the idea and run with it too far.
One of Tulkinghorn’s moles went to meet the good people at Gómez-Acebo & Pombo at the Spanish firm’s London office. After the usual pleasantries, the scribe requested access to the men’s toilet – a request that generated blank looks on many of the assembled faces.
