News reaches Tulkinghorn that the chaps at Schillings, those libel lawyers extraordinaire, pulled out all the stops to ensure a suitably high ranking in the legal directories this year.
During the interminable research period, former TV star Angus Deayton called a researcher to help establish the celeb lawyers’ credentials. The lass, it appears, was suitably impressed by a call from the well-known frequenter of hotels (oh, to have listened in on that one), and the firm received a glowing report.
Tulkinghorn had heard rumours that the chaps at Schillings were vertiginous rankers. This has now been confirmed.
