  • I am sorry but Tidswell is off his rocker if he thinks Ashurst is going to have a hope of being alongside the likes of Freshfields, Skadden, Latham or Linklaters in 5 years time.

    I admire his ambition but with PEP of sub$1m Ashurst is only ever going to be an also ran in the global stakes.

  • @Petros the Pelican - It's not really PEP that needs to be the subject of discussion here, but instead the type of work the firm will do from now on. High value, global, life and death matters = big fees and the makings of a global elite brand.
    Any firm with a small enough equity partnership and sufficient volume of work can increase PEP, but high PEP alone does not make a global elite firm.
    The clients/work types are the answer, the money is just the end product.

    So it must be pretty easy this law firm management game: "Right, from now on people, we're only going to do high-value, global, life and death matters, because that's what will get us big fees and the makings of a global elite brand. What's more, I think we can steal a march on our competitors here, because I don't think anyone else has thought of that." Done. Easy. Yay me.

  • Sounds just like the over ambitious comments from Freebies... Global elite not.
