Silent partner

Recently Tulkinghorn and his minions were compiling stats on partner moves over the past three years for The Lawyer’s spanking new career report. (Admittedly, any info gathering can be a tedious exercise, but it is nevertheless vital for all that. Honest.)

As an added ingredient, the hacks had requested the recent hires and promotions be split along gender lines. One firm’s PR, who shall remain nameless to save the blushes, responded thus: “Corporate partners 11; men 10, women none.” Tulkinghorn would like to meet the eleventh, for curiosity reasons only.
