My grandfather, J.S. Rubinstein, first practised as a solicitor in Gray's Inn in 1889: the firm became Rubinstein Leggatt & Co.
I followed my uncle, Stanley Rubinstein, practising alongside his two brothers, Harold (my father) and Ronald, as senior partner of Rubinstein Nash & Co.
Now I am retiring as a consultant with its successor firm. My cousin, John Rubinstein, son of Anthony and grandson of Stanley, is one of the partners joining Manches & Co.
In reporting on your front page (The Lawyer, 4 October) the recent merger of Rubinstein Callingham Polden & Gale with Manches & Co under the heading "Manches links up with Rubensteins" (sic), you report "The new firm will remain as Manches, losing Rubenstein's 170-year old name".
Surviving Rubinsteins might regard as sad the disappearance of their name from any firm of solicitors, after a period of 105 years.
Your misspelling of their name is, however, careless, even bizarre.
