  • The London office is still leaking partners and suffering to retain and win business. The city is awash with cv's of Mayer Brown partners. The only reason the office has been able to attract a few people is by offering them vastly expanded pay packages for 2 years.

  • They must be doing something right though if they have no debt and can make big name hires.

  • Anonymous 4:14 - spot on! All the headhunters are reporting that they have MB partners in advanced discussions with other firms.

    The downward spiral has set in. The departure of good partners with followings only serves to depress the profitability of the London office yet further. Money has been flowing in from the US for a number of years now to keep the place afloat, despite the attempts of management to shave off overheads (e.g. the apparently serial sub-letting of floor after floor - they only have one complete floor left that hasn't been sublet in whole or part).

  • Anon 9:07 on 13th....same turn of phrase you used in commenting on last MB story...would have got you caught in the cheapest detective novel. Hope all well in new role.

  • @anon 4.59...but Dewey was piled high with debt, and these guys don't have a penny of debt, and still a PEP level which would make the UK firms jealous.
