XXXX XXXX, a lawyer who was at university with the ‘spit roast’ email trainee lawyer Daniel England, gives the inside line on the City boy scandal to drooling journalist Alex Aldridge.
Top employment lawyer Kevin Poulter then weighs in with his expert opinion as to whether or not the hapless Shearman & Sterling youngster will lose his job.
Exhausted with excitement, the trio then change the subject and discuss XXXX’s interesting legal career, which has taken him from XXXX to an in-house role at XXXX, via a stint at XXXX. “Is in-house a better life than private practice?” demands Aldridge.
Poulter sighs as he looks longingly out of the window towards Sheffield, his city of birth, with its array of companies hungry for internal legal support. “No,” he whispers.
