Simple Simmons

Simmons & Simmons partners obviously had communication skills high on their agenda when it came time to vote for new management.

The firm’s new senior partner David ‘cheap as chips’ Dickinson set new standards of direct and forthright communication in recent repartee with one of Tulkinghorn’s scribes.

When asked why the former managing partner had decided to return to senior management, Dickinson simply said: “Because I’m good at it.”

Eloquent to the last, not to mention modest.
