  • Taking it personally

    Warren Feldman did some great pro bono work, including standing up to Bush. A good guy as well as a good lawyer.

  • The Right Move

    Clifford Chance is not the sort of firm that retains the best. Glad that Warren Feldman will take his skills and work elsewhere.

  • Glad to have gone

    I had the misfortune of working as an associate in the London office of the litigation department at CC. I am very glad I made the move to a US law firm where the Partners really do nurture and retain the best staff. CC has too many managers and all are looking out for themselves.

    This is very bad news for Clifford Chance. It will surely have a knock on effect on litigation in London.

  • I use to work for the firm in their Records Department

    Well I must say it is not a surprise to hear these Partners leaving first they are all great men who I admire and have the pleasure of calling them my friends.

    The thing that CC neads to recognize is this is not Europe in the States clients belong to the attorney not the firm.

    They also need to get over their hang up with control. They seemed to believe since they bpought out Rogers and Wells that our input is not important. We know how to run a firm stateside you should listen to those people who have been trying to intregrate you with the way we do business on this side of the pond.

  • good for CC

    CC doesn't need to have a big litigation practice as the US firms. It is a true international firm with the best international corporate and finance practice. If at all, litigation should just be a decoration. To be honest, CC shouldn't care too much about the US. The fight for the US market has cost it too much. It's not worth it. Nobody can have them all.
