  • 1. Baker Botts, and other oil & gas firms will not be trembling their knees at this appointment.

    2. Gide now ought to be renamed "vide" which in French means empty....of any lawyers.

  • Au contraire Francois - where is eg Baker Botts' French-speaking E&P lawyer...? Its a fast expanding market, and needs the capacity to service it. Smart move for Ashurst.

  • Francois, is your first comment really necessary?
    Nicolas is a fantastic lawyer and extremely well known and loved by commercial parties (ie clients) in the African E&P market. This is borne out in a firm of Ashurst's quality hiring him, and doing so straight into their partnership. It is a great move for Nicolas and a great move by Ashurst.

  • He also has lovely hair. Really thick and curly and no grey. Dammit I love his hair.

    More seriously, Francois, you're wrong. He's a fine lawyer in a growing market. Gide were fools to let him go.
