Marvellous names in law

We’ve been sent some names of lawyers that deserve to be celebrated.

First, the delightfully named Cupcake Brown. And much like a vegetable character in a children's book there's Hugh Cumber at Five Stone Buildings

A less fortunate name on the letterhead is Shayne Strukoff at Gowling WLG.

Brookfield has an in-house lawyer called Justin Beber. Whilst at Orrick, there's Lisa Simpson
 




Who wouldn't want to share their name with the pop pipsqueek

 

As for law firms, you can follow the adventures of Rupert Bear Murray Davies.

Whilst Wright Hassell is well known, other dodgy firm names include Swindell & Pearson, Shaidy & Co and Tosswill & Co. Although Godloves Solicitors optimistically suggests that there's redemption for all.

Finally, Royds should be pumped to get a mention.

If you know any other excellent names in the legal profession, do add in the comments below, or let us know here.

Barclays in-house legal negotiators always good value for this...

1) Wing Man at BarCap has married to lose her fantastic moniker. She's a "man" down.

2) Anil Bangar is often found hanging out the back of a deal.
