This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
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.
