Despite the global turnover of the firm is negative (-4%), the 450 partners in order to earn each 100 K more, have left home 450 staff. In practise they reduced staff cost for 60m and then distributed 40 m “former staff salaaries” as additional profits!…Each partner “killed” a staff a got his salary.
