It’s no joke

An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman were working on a deal. Cue terrible joke, except this one is actually true.

Scottish firm McGrigors’ US-born London corporate partner David Mandell was advising online travel group CNG Travel on its AIM IPO recently. Kiwi partner Sean Wallace of BCM Hanby Wallace was advising CNG on local Irish issues, while English partner Giles Beale of US firm Reed Smith was taking care of nomad Evolution Beeson Gregory. And the Irishman? Mandell’s lead assistant, Martin Finnegan. How cosmopolitan is this wacky world of the law, eh?
