Nine firms ignore question, two reply


A Twitter troll is seeking to turn the tables on a host of top law firms by asking them the staple vac scheme application question about what makes them “unique”.

So far the individual behind the account — who appears to have completed one too many application forms — has tweeted 11 firms with the inquiry, including magic circle trio Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance and Freshfields, transatlantic giants Hogan Lovells and DLA Piper, US outfits Kirkland & Ellis and Jones Day, and mid-tier players Addleshaw Goddard, Olswang, Nabarro and Kingsley Napley.

Nine of the firms ignored the troll. But Hogan Lovells and Olswang have, to their credit, replied.

Twitter awaits @elliotchonts’ next move …
