    Any merger would prove tough in the current climate, but if they had managed to pul it off the results could have been amazing. Mind you, with Clifford Chance keen to cut a load of Mallesons' partners, perhaps bad memories of its disastrous first foray into the US market put it off.

    But god knows Clifford Chance needs to do something to pep up its international footprint because the US really doesn't seem to be working for it at the moment.

    That's not news - last time I visited CC's London office, half the associates there were Australians.

    Then again, that was a few years ago. They're probably all back at Mallesons now...

  • merger madness

    A merger between Australians and Brits will never work, too much potential for personality clashes.

    CC must be crazy to consider another merger after Roger & Wells. It was a complete nightmare and the firm is still feeling the repercussions now. They would face the same issues all over again.

    What?! Aussies are very similar. Less cultured, obviously, but much better at sport. Similar sense of humour and they all call all males 'mate'. They'd get on like a house on fire.

  • Not good for Mallesons

    Can you imagine being a partner at Mallesons at the moment? You've just discovered that your firm is more than happy to get rid of you. I'd be looking for another job.

  • CC v aussies

    I wouldn't say that the people who work at Clifford Chance are less cultured that the aussies.

    A few comments here from people that obviously don't work at CC. CC is a great place to work and the partners here are more easy going, friendlier and more approachable than in most other places. If the Aussies would have got on with any magic circle firm, it's probably CC.
