Drunk gall or trunk calls?

Tulkinghorn hears that banking partner James Johnson stole the show at Clifford Chance‘s recent partnership retreat in Barcelona.

During a panel session featuring star general counsel such as Sabine Chalmers from InBev and Rich Rosenthal from Morgan Stanley, Johnson rolled up a tad late and in fetching shorts.

At question time it was left to Johnson to enliven the debate. “Sorry I’m a bit late for this,” he said, addressing InBev’s Chalmers, “but I was having a bit too much of your product last night.”

At which point Telefonica’s general counsel quipped: “So, you were making lots of international calls?”Tulkinghorn thinks that is not what Johnson meant at all.
