‘Hunt the partner’: Top London media firm makes trainees play Hide and Seek with ‘disguised’ senior lawyers

News of Clintons’ bizarre Covent Garden game leaks on Instagram

Hide&Seek

Pity the poor trainees at Clintons.

Spurred by the promise of representing top showbiz stars, they overcame hundreds of other media law hopefuls in order to land one of the coveted pair of training contracts offered each year by the central London law firm.

Cue a glamorous life on the sunlit uplands of law as legal advisors to Clintons’ varied stable of celeb clients, including Shane Richie, Paul Weller and EastEnders’ Jessie Wallace.

But that’s only one part of the deal. The other is, er, adult hide and seek … in which Clintons’ trainees are encouraged to hunt for disguised partners in the Covent Garden area around the firm’s office

Note, by the way, the excellently-drafted ‘Hunt the partner’ rules, complete with sub-clauses, for Tuesday’s fixture.

Happily, the trainee who leaked the document on Instagram this week seems to be putting on a brave face.

When contacted by Legal Cheek yesterday afternoon, Clintons declined to issue a comment.

See there kids, that’s exactly what happens when you don’t manage to bag a TC with a reputable (i.e. MC) firm – you’ll end up at some decrepit shop in the West End…

These homophobic trolls who can’t spell or write a clear sentence actually make me miss the Blacker trolls.
