  • The wheels are starting to come of and Clifford Chance now has essentially two options. Merge with a top tier U.S. firm. Or slide into mediocrity (or worse).

    Hahaha! 'Failed in...'

    Wouldn't pay the "FILTH" to advise how to boil an egg.

    In this case, however, he's not exactly a failure. He's made it pretty much everywhere. If the City had actually made it clear that he had no prospects here, I would agree. But that doesn't seem the case.

  • Top partners leave while medium or salary "network" partners stay stuck to their seats....Look at CC Italy where almost all the partners who left the firm were top ones while others.....).

  • By all accounts, a nicer kinder gentler bloke could not be found in the City. His run at the global litigation leadership role, however, was perceived as a last ditch attempt to salvage a London career. So back to HK. Like the movie Back to the Future, Brock's Back to HK comes in 3 parts. He can only hope Part 3 is as good for him as Back to the Future III was for Michael J Fox.

  • Has noone noticed the irony of Brock moving to Mallesons, a firm Cliffords was in merger discussions with two years ago?

  • "Denis has given us many years of service"
    Pretty much sums up how CC view their partners
