Instead of litigating ( I’d have a pretty good guess as to which firm is acting for them) they should ask themselves what causes a whole team to up sticks. BLG should then address those causes. Good luck to the aviation team. Don’t know if they ever had reason to doubt their decision to leave but I’m sure they won’t now.

I can’t see the merged firm of Clydes/Barlows wanting a fight like that with HFW, especially as it concerns the same clients. The merger is not a done deal however; a number of BLG (and Clyde) partners are not keen and Clydes have made it clear there are certain BLG partners they don’t want. If it doesn’t get voted through, BLG will be completely dead in the water and probably needs to claw money from wherever it can. An ignominious end to a once very reputable firm.
