  • It's a very significant loss. Taylor Wessing only the latest firm to benefit as BLG's better lawyers jump from the sinking ship.

  • Regardless of whether Julian is a big loss or not, I'm staggered to see BLG is yet again thinking of "growing its non-contentious practices". Ye gods, haven't the "new" management learned ANYTHING from the last 20 years? BLG will never have a substantial non-contentious practice; they don't have the people nor can they persuade decent people to join them.

  • It's a laughable business model - no chance of building a non-contentious practice, therefore no chance of establishing a successful commercial litigation practice - they are doomed to stay stuck being an insurance-led practice which can't pay its best people enough, or keep them interested enough, to stick around!

  • What's so bad about being insurance-led? A lot of firms would give anything to have BLG's penetration, nationally and internationally, of a sector that generates such a volume of litigation. If he is such a significant loss why is he going to a firm with nothing like the litigation credentials of Barlows? Looks more like BLG sharpening its pen.
