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.

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).
