  • these guys only hear what they want. Its a chnaged environment now with new London managment and the fear of "another" round of redundancies......

  • Here is another chance for political score settling. Who is to blame for the latest fiasco and the lame reactions from W&C?

  • In London there was a marked change when the London management changed. Fundamentally one needs to look at who is steering each office, and in Londons case its Oliver Brettle.

  • Its says it all when the second round of redundancies resulted in a very high number of voluntary redundancies. Even in times of recessions we were all shocked!

  • I'd agree with the comment above - management changes and the lead figure of the London office has changed things for good. Its time to go when the top bod makes it that that bad to be in.
    At that point it was easier to take what was on offer via the 'round' of redundancies.

  • W&C started off in London as an enterprising and fun place to work. Beginning 2005 it all started to go down hill with B class partners taking on leadership roles. No mentoring, no credit where due, just a lot of selfish partners and paranoid senior associates. And this is from someone who resigned on his own terms due to relocation issues. For any law students reading, look elsewhere, this is not a nice place to start your career.

  • Also no lateral partner in their right mind would go to W&C, and that is not just the London office. Too many entrenched partners that will not let go of their power, and weak management that doesn't know what is going on in their international offices and doesn't have the interest to do a review with the troops actually on the ground

  • From the comments on this site, White and Case appears no different from any other law firm.
