  • Just following the money, about 30% more money at BLP for the same work at Norton Rose. £200,000-plus extra a year for doing exactly the same job, it's a no brainer.

    NR may be big, but its PEP is woeful compared to its peers. Something for Peter Martyr to ponder on.... perhaps?

  • NR also has a reputation for being a nice place to work and for treating its associates well. This is something which is attractive to graduates/trainees/associates so as far as getting the best of the next generation is concerned, NR is way ahead of other firms.

  • Great to recruit the next generation, but in terms of existing NR corporate partners, Julian was the next generation. The fact that NR couldn't keep someone as talented as Julian who (unlike the others mentioned in the article) has spent all of his professional career at NR should be worrying for the firm, and sends out the message to juniors that NR corporate finance is merely a stepping stone to better things elsewhere.

  • "Star"? Even Mr Stanier might agree that his description as a corporate finance star is born out of, well, perhaps the fevered imagination of BLP's marketing people? Or has the Lawyer some information on the size, value and complexity of Mr Stanier's deals that the rest of the legal world is unaware of? Pray do tell what it takes to be a "star" in corporate finance for the Lawyer. On the apparent basis used, there are likely to be so many twinkling constellations of corporate lawyers out there, that Brian Cox will be showing up in the City with a telescope.
