Bolt Burdon is an Islington law firm which puts its clients first, after chairs.
As the profile photos for its staff prove, nothing compares to the fun that can be had in a chair. But although everyone at Bolt Burdon loves man's favourite four-legged friends (chairs), they don't all love them in the same way.
For example, there is the chair train crew.
Then there is the proprietorial hand gang.
"Sorry, this seat is taken."
Other staff simply express delight at the existence of chairs. After all, without their chairs they would have to crouch, kneel, or lie face-down on the floor.
Some staff are portrayed as chair pioneers, pushing the limits of what is possible in a chair. For them, the chair is an upholstered taunt, challenging them to rethink the very concept of sitting down. It can be edge-of-your-seat stuff.

Although they might be on something.
