Royal Courts of JusticeThe Diary has brought you its usual heady mix of infantile gossip, sexual innuendo and gratuitous pictures of semi-naked men this year. But have you been concentrating? If you have, then you’ll know why a Clifford Chance charity bash to save the rhino had a particular resonance – and why top billing DJ Alan Partridge is setting up the firm’s West Coast US practice. And you’ll also have a good chance of winning this year’s Christmas quiz. The prize, kindly donated by recruiters EJ Legal is tickets for two at a West End show with champers in the break. E-mail your answers to thediary@gpmuk.com by next Thursday (19 December). In the case of a tie, the winning entry will be picked out of a hat.
