Separated at birth

Theatre-goers in the West End earlier this year will have been treated to the Olivier-winning performance of none other than Norton Rose chief operating officer Kevin Mortell. Mortell was starring in the hit musical The Producers, a show all about making money by putting on a show that flops. Modestly, Mortell adopted the stage name of Nathan Lane, which he’ll also be using when the show becomes a film later this year. Tulkinghorn just hopes Mortell will remember his old firm when he’s attending all those press junkets.

Could this be why the blinds stay firmly shut in the firm’s in-house dining rooms?
