They could be the bright shiny ones Reply Link Anonymous 26 January 2010 at 09:54 I agree with this first comment. The first line of the article is also misleading. The bulk of Shadbolt’s partnership is not set to join Clydes. Check your facts! There were 24 partners at Shadbolt six months ago. 6 partners have already left. Of the 18 remaining partners, only 8 are due to join Clydes (7 as partner), i.e. a third of Shadbolt’s partnership (and a handful of associates). Not sure this will give Clydes the additional critical mass and depth they were looking for… Reply Link Anonymous 26 January 2010 at 11:33 I agree with the above comments. Moreover, do those partners ‘acquired’ by Clydes really have the expertise and client base to develop their international work? I think Stevens & Bolton have done well out of this.
