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.
Eddard Stark = Allen & Overy’s Belfast office
Saw the writing on the wall a little too late.
Jaime Lannister = Clifford Chance
Well-meaning but constantly wrong-footed by events close to home.
Daenerys Targaryen = King & Wood Mallesons
Assembling international army to take over the world?
Khal Drogo = DLA Piper
Big, not that clever.
Jon Snow = Burges Salmon
Thriving beyond the
Tyrion Lannister = Bindmans
Heart in the right place, constantly battling demons.
Arya Stark = Slater & Gordon
Thriving amid the slips, trips and falls of an unforgiving world.
Ramsay Snow = Skadden
Margaery Tyrell = Irwin Mitchell
Climbing the ladder though innovative positioning.
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.
Varys = CMS Cameron McKenna
Leads a network of mysterious overseas affiliates.
Cersei Lannister = Latham & Watkins
Not the most welcoming to visitors.
Robb Stark = Cobbetts
Looked the part, but really a boy in a man’s world.
Petyr Baelish = Schillings
Sinister but effective.
Theon Greyjoy = Halliwells
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).
