Lawyers slug it out for charity

LOYAL readers will remember that The Capitalist reported last month on five sparring solicitors from DLA Piper, Clyde & Co and SJ Berwin clubbing together to compete in a black tie charity boxing match near St Paul’s.

The gloves are now firmly off and The Capitalist is happy to report that Saturday’s punch-up at the Grange Hotel has so far raised over £23,000 for the renovation of Buhinga School in Uganda.

No surprises that our favourite Ed “the Executioner” Eccles, a litigation associate at Clyde & Co, came out on top in his bout against Chris “The Cremator” Ashbourne, a spy tells The Capitalist. Apparently the lawyer bashing went down so well they are already planning the next fight.
