Tulkinghorn has been particularly impressed with Team GB’s success at the Beijing Olympics. Winning gold medals in the ‘sit down’ sports of rowing, cycling and sailing is something all deskbound lawyers can aspire to.
It seems that staff at CMS Cameron McKenna were similarly enthralled – so much so that the internet connection was brought to a standstill as hundreds of lawyers logged on to the BBC website to watch their heroes on live stream.
Internal comms staff were forced to send out an email rebuke – not to tell Camerons’ lawyers that they should be working, but to remind them that the Olympics was also being shown on several TV screens around the building.
Good to know that Camerons’ employees are never too busy to support UK sporting achievement. If only the International Olympic Committee recognised Tulkinghorn’s favourite sit-down event, the 50ml brandy sip, then the UK might have added another gold to its medal haul.
