Hog Love

Unless you’ve been living in a steel bunker through the weekend, it’d be hard to miss the fact that spring has put in a belated appearance.

And, as is often the case at this time of year, it’s not unusual to see doe-eyed newly loved-up couples cavorting around the parks and beer gardens of Albion.

Look – there’s Nation’s Sweetheart Cheryl Cole snuggling up to grammatically challenged rapper Will.I.Am. And isn’t that soon-to-be World Cup losing semi-finalist Frank Lampard making eyes at BBC lovely Christine Bleakley?

Of course, most famously, there’s the storybook romance that is the ’will they, won’t they’ love-across-the-dispatch-box marriage of David Cameron and Nick Clegg.

But now topping the lot is the transatlantic love story between David Harris and Warren Gorrell. The union of this star-crossed pair was made official at the Hogan Lovells press party last week.

In today’s copy of The Lawyer we’ve got the full lowdown on the greatest double act since David Brent and Chris Finch, and why they’ve made remuneration a dirty word (see story).

Also, there’s news that the London corporate team is showing the rest of them how to handle this integration malarkey (see story). And finally, there’s a look at the challenges the newly merged uber-firm faces in China.

That’s a whole lot of HoLo news for a Monday afternoon.
