Exclusive: A&O partner hospitalised after drinking session with client
17 February 2012
A partner at Allen & Overy's
Singapore office ended up in hospital after getting off his face at a bash with an important client.
The unnamed partner was out on the lash with clients from an investment bank. After a few too many sherberts he decided to head home, and one of the clients tried to help him in a cab. But even this simple act of locomotion was too much for the inebriated partner who missed his footing, fell off the kerb and crashed to the pavement. Smashing his head open so badly that he had to be taken to hospital.
||How it might have looked |
A&O has form for boozed-up shenanigans. One of its former partners, after he moved to Berwin Leighton Paisner
, got so pissed during some after work drinks that he got into a fight and had to be pulled off one of his associates
But insiders say that A&O's Singapore office head does not take kindly to such things, and that this partner's antics have gone down very badly indeed. A spokesman for A&O wouldn't comment.
