As the fifth season of Game of Thrones gathers pace, we answer the question on the lips of every member of the legal profession: which Game of Thrones character is your law firm?

Joffrey Baratheon = Slaughter and May

Difficult to love, at times downright weird, but undeniably rich and powerful.

Slaughter

Eddard Stark = Allen & Overy’s Belfast office

Saw the writing on the wall a little too late.

allen

Jaime Lannister = Clifford Chance

Well-meaning but constantly wrong-footed by events close to home.

CC

Daenerys Targaryen = King & Wood Mallesons

Assembling international army to take over the world?

King

Khal Drogo = DLA Piper

Big, not that clever.

DLA

Jon Snow = Burges Salmon

Thriving beyond the M25 Wall.

bristol

Tyrion Lannister = Bindmans

Heart in the right place, constantly battling demons.

Bindmans

Arya Stark = Slater & Gordon

Thriving amid the slips, trips and falls of an unforgiving world.

SG

Ramsay Snow = Skadden

Torturing associates.

S

Margaery Tyrell = Irwin Mitchell

Climbing the ladder though innovative positioning.

IM

Brienne of Tarth = Farrer & Co

Servants to the royal family.

farrer

Catelyn Stark = Berwin Leighton Paisner’s Lawyers On Demand Service

Not quite sure how it came to this.

BLP1

Varys = CMS Cameron McKenna

Leads a network of mysterious overseas affiliates.

CMS

Cersei Lannister = Latham & Watkins

Not the most welcoming to visitors.

LW

Robb Stark = Cobbetts

Looked the part, but really a boy in a man’s world.

C

Petyr Baelish = Schillings

Sinister but effective.

withers

Theon Greyjoy = Halliwells

Disturbing demise.

halli

Tywin Lannister = The bar of England & Wales

Too set in their ways to see that change was coming (OK, so the bar isn’t a law firm, but the resemblance was too strong to resist).

Tywin Lannister (the bar) – stuck in his ways – true.

However, the world (courts) plunged into chaos without him (them), leaving a group of weak flaky rulers (read solicitors) just waiting to be washed away by the White Walkers( read professional service firms/Tesco) or an army from overseas (US firms)…

Meh

Slaughter and May should be Samwell Tarly!

I’d have Linklaters as the Joffrey of the UK market. Evil and rich and difficult to ignore.
Slaughters = Ironborn. Independent, strong but a bit odd and not hugely relevant to the Game.
Freshfields = The Starks. The oldest, very powerful but a bit too polite and honourable for their own good.
A&O = Tyrells. Rich and everyone seems to think they’re lovely for some reasons…

Herbies= The Freys. Forever bitter about not being at the top of the tree.

I’m intrigued that Tucker’s Camberwell outpost is the representation of the Bar…

Tuckers would be the white walkers, heading ever southward re animating the corpses of dead law firms?
