  • Whilst Chris and David have generally done reasonable jobs cementing a firm that is such a mish-mash of parts after so many mergers/take-overs in so few years, neither have the background which the current firm needs.

    Both their backgrounds - as tax/pensions lawyers who have never worked outside the UK - fits very poorly with a firm which is now very internationally focused. The practice areas are in decline within the firm where core strengths are now services aimed at global clients in areas such as projects, construction, arbitration etc.

    Richard Foley is probably a safe choice to succeed Chris (who I sure will go) and is better equipped with the skills needed to lead the firm forward having been Asia head for a time and leader of the construction team. As to who will replace David the field is much wider with a number of contenders.

  • Interesting comment about the IP department. Looks like they recently appointed a new head of IP, the old national head of Intellectual Property seems to listed as a consultant on their website.
