It’s the Cheltenham Festival of law firms: thoroughbreds charging through the foggy sun, underdogs giving it a go, the odd dark horse enticing a few bets.
The competition chief takes over on 1 May after defeating litigation partner Hilton Mervis, who, by most reports, was a 500/1 outsider.
Managing partner Rob Day has shouted weighed-in, setting the ball rolling for 1/12 favourite Kon to replace true classic Jonathan Blake as the boss, with the tic-tac man smiling in the corner.
So, it’s Kon by a mile. Now it’s time to see if this winner is a genuine classic, or a one race wonder.
